Enter the total number of seeds and the total square footage into the Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Seeds Per Square Foot. 

Seeds Per Square Foot Formula

SSF = S / SF


  • SSF is the Seeds Per Square Foot (seeds/ft^2)
  • S is the total number of seeds
  • SF is the total square footage

To calculate Seeds Per Square Foot, divide the number of seeds by the area in square feet.
