Enter the distance between plants within rows (in) and the distance between rows (in) into the Plant Area Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Plant Area.

## Plant Area Formula

The following two example problems outline the steps and information needed to calculate the Plant Area.

**PA = DBP * DBR**

- Where PA is the Plant Area (in^2)
- DBP is the distance between plants within rows (in)
- DBR is the distance between rows (in)

## How to Calculate Plant Area?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Plant Area.

Example Problem #1:

- First, determine the distance between plants within rows (in).
- The distance between plants within rows (in) is given as: 5.

- Next, determine the distance between rows (in).
- The distance between rows (in) is provided as: 6.

- Finally, calculate the Plant Area using the equation above:

PA = DBP * DBR

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

PA = 5 * 6 = 30.00 (in^2)

Example Problem #2:** **

For this problem, the variables required are provided below:

distance between plants within rows (in) = 7

distance between rows (in) = 8

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

PA = DBP * DBR** = ?**
