  • about 110000, or one bushel
  • It depends on where the farmer lives! In the northern regions (Minnesota, North Dakota, Ontario, Quebec) farmers are trying to have about 31,000 plants per acre. They will plant a bit more because not all seed will result in a productive plant. Further south however farmers are going for higher densities, more like 35,000 plants per acre. This is assuming the corn is planted for grain. For silage the densities could be even higher, but I doubt anybody would plant 110,000 plants per acre....
