    Anyone know the seed rate per acre of winter wheat and ladino mix?

    How are you planting - drill or broadcast. I plant by broadcasting and the minimum I will plant is 100 lbs wheat per acre. I prefer 150. 6 or 7 lbs ladino. Seed doesnt come up as good when broadcast as drilled. Cultipacker on clover does much better. Those numbers are pretty good - give or take - depending on your method of planting, equipment, and how well the ground is prepared.

    Thanks. Ground will be prepped good and I will have a cultipacker. I will broadcast as well. Would you do together or wheat cultipack then clover and cultipack again?

    If I had the time - I would lightly disk the wheat - or drag it after planting - then top seed the clover after that and cultipack it all at one time.
