Mostly it comes down to the different types of protective coating on the seed. They may be uncoated (brown in appearance), lime coated (normally blue) which is a thick coating of lime around the seed, acting as a bird repellent but creating a lot of additional bulk and weight and then there is film coating (often red), as the name suggests it is a thin film over the seed providing fungal and bird repellent without bulk, this means 1kg of film coated grass seed actually contains 1kg of seed unlike those with a lime coating.
