Bulk vs. Pure Live Seed (PLS)

England Erosion sells its seed in bulk or pure live seed (PLS) quantities. Pure live seed refers to the amount of live seed in a lot of bulk seed. The cost of pure live seed is proportionately higher than bulk seed. All seeding rates and prices are based on bulk seed unless indicated with ‘PLS’ following a rate or price.

The Formula: The purity % multiplied by the germination, divided by 100 equals the amount of pure live seed (PLS) in a lot of bulk seed. To determine how much bulk seed is required for 1 PLS pound, 1 is divided by the PLS %.

The Example: (96% purity x 80% germ)/100 = 76.8% PLS per pound of seed; 1/.768 = 1.3 pounds bulk needed for 1 pound of PLS
