if this is a grain farmer most of them around here get 5#'s of Incredible from their seed supplier every year for a "gift" for buying seed corn. so, many of them plant it along the front end of their field. 5#'s o sweet corn seed is a lot of seed, but it is probably the minimum quantity for a planter the size they use.
