What is the Seeding Rate Layer on FBN® Planting Maps?

May 13, 2019

The FBN® Seeding Rate Map shows the actual seeding rate that your planter recorded throughout the field. This feature is available to FBN members in the United States and Canada.

The color range on the map varies between light yellow to dark green. Dark green areas represent higher seeding rates while light yellow areas represent lower seeding rates.

Although the same colors will appear on each seeding rate map, the range of values and seeding rate is limited to the selected field and will vary from field to field.


The legend is a histogram bar chart with each bar representing the percentage of the field that corresponds to each seeding rate range and color on the map. Light yellow bars represent areas with lower seeding rates, while dark green bars represent areas with higher seeding rates. Your average seeding rate value is shown above the legend.
