Enter the space between plants and the space between rows into the calculator to determine the plants per hectare.

Plants Per Hectare Formula

The following equation is used to calculate the Plants Per Hectare.

PD = 10,000 / (SBP * SBR)

  • Where PD is the plants per hectare (plants/10,000m^2)
  • SBP is the space between plants (m)
  • SBR is the space between rows (m)

To calculate the plants per hectare, divide 10,000 by the product of the space between plants and the space between rows.

What is a Plants Per Hectare?

Definition:

A plants per hectare is a unit of measure of plant population density in a given field. It measure the number of plants per 10,000 square meters.

How to Calculate Plants Per Hectare?

Example Problem:

The following example outlines the steps and information needed to calculate the Plants Per Hectare.

First, determine the space between plants. In this example, the space between plants is .25m.

Next, determine the space between rows. The rows in this case are measured to be spaced .45m apart.

Finally, calculate the plants per hectare using the formula above:

PD = 10,000 / (SBP * SBR)

PD = 10,000 / (.25 * .45)

PD = 88,888.88 plants per hectare
