On the number of seedlings.    In my case, the number of seedlings that survived
the requisite six weeks to one year under lights before being lined out in the
seedling beds.   For the first six weeks, the mortality rate is high -- about
half can't make the transition from living off the food reserves stored in the
seed to living on their own.
