I am trying to figure out seed count. There is 1.7 Million seeds per gram. How do I figure out what 500, 1000 etc. seeds weighs? :lol: Thanks in advance.

The weight of 1 seed is 1 g/1.7 million seeds or 0.588 ug/seed (misusing the letter "u" for micro).

Now multiple by the number of seeds, for 1000 seed, 588 ug or 0.588 mg. (You'll need a pretty good scale.)
