Enter the amount of manure used (lbs) and the number of acres into the Manure Application Rate Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Manure Application Rate.

## Manure Application Rate Formula

The following two example problems outline the steps and information needed to calculate the Manure Application Rate.

MAR = M / A

• Where MAR is the Manure Application Rate (lbs of manure per acre)
• M is the amount of manure used (lbs)
• A is the number of acres

## How to Calculate Manure Application Rate?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Manure Application Rate.

Example Problem #1:

1. First, determine the amount of manure used (lbs).
• The amount of manure used (lbs) is given as: 30.
2. Next, determine the number of acres.
• The number of acres is provided as: 10.
3. Finally, calculate the Manure Application Rate using the equation above:

MAR = M / A

The values provided above are inserted into the equation below and computed.

MAR = 30 / 10 = 3.00 (lbs of manure per acre)

Example Problem #2:

For this problem, the variables required are provided below:

amount of manure used (lbs) = 500

number of acres = 200
