Why Canadian Certified Seed?
Certified seed is the product of a production process designed to deliver specific plant breeding achievements to farmers and the food industry. In other words, it is true-to-type. True-to-type means all the benefits developed by the plant breeder are retained as the seed is multiplied over a number of specific number of generations (to the Certified seed stage) from the small amount of seed developed by the plant breeder.
How many plants per Square Ft?

You also need to know how many seeds to plant per square foot (different for each crop type.) With this information you can calculate how many pounds of seed to plant per acre.
