I am in the research gathering phase, helping to formulate a business plan so we can receive funding for our project.. a sustainable wellness center in Colorado, and we want to have a vertical organic aquaponic garden

Check the viability on the seed- if it's 90% viability multiply the number of seeds you'll need to plant by 1.1 so 174000*1.1= 191400 seeds. The seed company will list the no. of seeds per oz on the packaging.
The amount of seed you need varies depending on planting density. My towers are the most productive ones out there right now, and they typically allow around 5-6 plants per square foot of production area. So for an acre, estimating that around 20% of your space is used for access or wasted, you're looking at around: 43500 square feet x 0.8 x 5 = 174000 plants per acre. Let me know when you are getting ready to build! Our towers are better for AP production than anything else!
