it depends on what type of seed is in the bag. it will state it right on the bag too if you look for it.

Lescos tall fescue blend says that It will cover 12,000 sf when overseeding or 8,000sf when first time seeding a new lawn.

rule of thumb we use is overseeding 2-3 lbs per thousand s.f. and 7-9 lbs on a newly seeded lawn.(overseed in the early fall again if needed)

If you just overseeding 50lb would but you right a 3lbs per thou which is a good rate, it you trying to establish a new lawn from top soil you would need about 150 lbs at 8lbs per thou.
