Enter the volume of liquid in litres and the area in hectares into the calculator to determine the litres per hectare. This calculator helps in determining the distribution of liquid over a given area.

Litres Per Hectare Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the litres per hectare.

LPH = V / A


  • LPH is the litres per hectare
  • V is the volume of liquid (litres)
  • A is the area (hectares)

To calculate the litres per hectare, divide the volume of liquid by the area.

What is Litres Per Hectare?

Litres per hectare is a unit of measurement that indicates the amount of liquid distributed over one hectare of land. It is commonly used in agriculture for applications such as irrigation, fertilization, and pesticide distribution to ensure an even and adequate application over the crop area.

How to Calculate Litres Per Hectare?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Litres Per Hectare.

  1. First, determine the volume of liquid (V) in litres.
  2. Next, determine the area (A) in hectares.
  3. Next, gather the formula from above = LPH = V / A.
  4. Finally, calculate the Litres Per Hectare (LPH).
  5. After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.

Example Problem : 

Use the following variables as an example problem to test your knowledge.

volume of liquid (V) = 500 litres

area (A) = 2 hectares
