I have purchased six pounds of corn to plant in my field, and do not remember how much area this will cover. I am ready to have the land rototilled, and would like to know how many square feet to have done.

One quarter pound of corn will plant about 1000 feet of row (seeds spaced about 4" apart), so 6 pounds will plant 24,000 feet of row. Assuming your rows are spaced two and a half feet apart, by my math I figure you can plant an area of about 60,000 square feet. One acre is 43,560 square feet, so it's about one and a third acres. Check my math!
