If a 2-day soaking rain starts during seeding and you have to pull out of the field, what do you do with the mix left in the box? How long can small grain or alfalfa seed be mixed with fertilizer before germination is affected? We used wheat, oat, barley, and alfalfa seed and seven fertilizers in germination tests to find more precise answers than we've had to this point.
