​DEKALB® Planter Settings​​​​​​​​

​Seeding for plant uniformity is one of the first steps to optimize corn yield potential.

To determine your predicted planter setting, you will need to identify the following as listed on the back of the seed bag flap:

  • Seed Size
  • Seed Treatment
  • Seeds Per Pound

A sample image has been included below indicating where you can locate these three values on the seed bag. You will also need to select your Planter Type from the list included below in the third field. If you need assistance, please contact your Authorized DEKALB dealer.​​

This tool does not provide predictive planter setting data for P26 seed size.

All fields are required.

Please enter a numeric value for Seeds / lb.

Please be sure to enter the exact seed size, seed treatment and seeds/lb. from your DEKALB seed bag tag. For more information, contact your authorized DEKALB Dealer.
