The knife point runs just to the left of the previous year's stubble row to avoid bulldozing, and a wing set to the right of the boot places the seed under the existing stubble to target the moisture zone...

Seed size can also be quickly calculated at home by counting out 200 seeds and weighing - multiply the weight (grams) by five to get a 1000-seed weight; or divide 200,000 by the weight (grams) to get number of seeds per kilogram (depending on your preferred method of calculating seeding rates)...
