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:

- First, determine the amount of manure used (lbs).
- The amount of manure used (lbs) is given as: 30.

- Next, determine the number of acres.
- The number of acres is provided as: 10.

- 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

Test your knowledge using the equation and check your answer with the calculator..

MAR = M / A** = ?**
