Enter the seeds germinated and the total seeds planted into the Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Percent Germination. 

Percent Germination Formula

PG = SG / TS * 100


  • PG is the Percent Germination (%)
  • SG is the seeds germinated
  • TS is the total seeds planted

To calculate Percent Germination, divide the number of seeds germinated by the total seeds planted, then multiply by 100.

How to Calculate Percent Germination?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Percent Germination.

  1. First, determine the seeds germinated. 
  2. Next, determine the total seeds planted. 
  3. Next, gather the formula from above = PG = SG / TS * 100.
  4. Finally, calculate the Percent Germination.
  5. After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.

Example Problem : 

Use the following variables as an example problem to test your knowledge.

seeds germinated = 600

total seeds planted = 300
