I have an old JD. On the back are the seed plate opening setting adjusters. I still have the info sheet on the bottom of the hopper lid and this is what it says for sorghum. I use #16 for 50#/acre with depth pressure at max for discs at 7" spacing.

16 notches in the gauge position from fully closed. Seeder wheel is about 1/4" or so away from the sheet metal side.

Measure off an acre and test it. Put in a 50# bag and go with it. I know you will have to stop frequently to ensure the seed is in the trough to the seeder wheel, but an acre isn't all that big and won't take you that long.

For a 7' drill (actual seed dropping part) it is a strip 6200' long. For a 9' is 4840'. A mile is 5280'. If your field is 1000 ft long, it's about 6 laps or 5.

When you look at the bottom of the hopper from the inside, the thing that collects seeds and rolls them out.

On measuring your 10 acres just pace off one side and divide the paces by 10. That's your one acre. I have done that many times to measure a patch that I didn't know the size.
