Seed Costs for a Half-Acre

Courtesy of Curtis S., Green City Acres, Kelowna, BC

If you're farming around a half-acre, you can expect to spend upwards of $800 on seed. I have close to 100 beds in constant salad green production, and just to give you an idea how much seed I go through for that: 2.2 lb arugula, .25 lb green leaf lettuce, .25 lb red leaf, 125 lb mustard, and mizuna,  2 lbs chard and bulls blood beets. And a lot of 2 oz packs of various lettuces.
