Enter the total number of plants and the total area (acres) into the Planting Density Calculator. The calculator will evaluate and display the Planting Density.

## Planting Density Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Planting Density.

Dp = #P / A

• Where Dp is the Planting Density (plants/acre)
• #P is the total number of plants
• A is the total area (acres)

## How to Calculate Planting Density?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Planting Density.

Example Problem #1:

1. First, determine the total number of plants.
1. The total number of plants is given as: 500.
2. Next, determine the total area (acres).
1. The total area (acres) is provided as: 3.
3. Finally, calculate the Planting Density using the equation above:

Dp = #P / A

The values given above are inserted into the equation below:

Dp = 500 / 3 = 166.667 (plants/acre)

Example Problem #2:

For this problem, the variables needed are provided below:

total number of plants = 750

total area (acres) = 4

This example problem is a test of your knowledge on the subject. Use the calculator above to check your answer.

Dp = #P / A = ?
