Mix 236 (Northern Retention Basin Mix) is designed for retention basins with the environmental conditions of the northeastern tier states with wet soils.  The amount of seeds per pound of each species in the mix has been calculated using the number of seeds per pound of each species factored by environmental parameters.  Those seeds are listed in the table below with weights of ounces per pound of seed mix.

Rate: 9.80-13.00 PLS pounds/acre

We recommend including a nurse crop for this mix.  For fall thru spring, we recommend 20 to 32 Pounds of OATS per acre or 2 to 4 Pounds of ANNUAL RYE per acre.  For summer, we recommend 6 to 8 Pounds of BROWN TOP MILLET per acre.
