How to Read a Seed Label - Coated, Hulled, Unhulled... Oh My!

Excerpt:

When you buy seed, you pay by the pound no matter how much inert matter is on the analysis label. Jacklin's Hollywood bermudagrass is always sold as hulled and raw. That means a 25 lb bag of Hollywood has about 90% hulled PLS, or 1.11 lbs of Hollywood = 1 lb of PLS, versus the bermudagrass we caluclated above with 2.14 or more lbs of product to get you 1 lb PLS. You get half the seed if the product is hulled and coated. If it is unhulled and coated you get even less seed for your money, as little as 28% PLS, or 3.57 lbs of product to equal 1 lb of PLS.
