Enter the number of seeds planted (or weight, cost, etc) and the germination rate (%) into the Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Seed Loss.

## Seed Loss Formula

SL = SP - GR/100 *SP

Variables:

• SL is the Seed Loss (seeds)
• SP is the number of seeds planted (or weight, cost, etc)
• GR is the germination rate (%)

To calculate Seed Loss, multiply the germination rate by the number of seeds planted, then subtract the the result from the number of seeds planted.

## How to Calculate Seed Loss?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Seed Loss.

1. First, determine the number of seeds planted (or weight, cost, etc).
2. Next, determine the germination rate (%).
3. Next, gather the formula from above = SL = SP – GR/100 *SP.
4. Finally, calculate the Seed Loss.
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.

number of seeds planted (or weight, cost, etc) = 10000

germination rate (%) = 30
