For 2013, every unit of soybean seed sold by Pioneer, a DuPont business, will contain 140,000 seeds, according to Don Schafer, senior marketing manager for the company. Schafer says the uniform seed count provides a couple of benefits for farmers. "Growers will no longer have to reference variety seed size or seeds per pound; this will be just more convenient for them when they get ready to plant," he notes. Schafer provides more information about what the uniform seed count means for growers in the following video.
