Enter the total weight of potatoes harvested (tons) and the total area of harvest (hectare) into the Potato Yield Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Potato Yield. 

Potato Yield Formula

The following two example problems outline the steps and information needed to calculate the Potato Yield.

PY = WP / A

Variables:

  • PY is the Potato Yield (tons/hectare)
  • WP is the total weight of potatoes harvested (tons) 
  • A is the total area of harvest (hectare) 

How to Calculate Potato Yield?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Potato Yield.


  1. First, determine the total weight of potatoes harvested (tons). 
  2. Next, determine the total area of harvest (hectare). 
  3. Next, gather the formula from above = PY = WP / A.
  4. Finally, calculate the Potato Yield.
  5. After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.

Example Problem : 

Use the following variables as an example problem to test your knowledge.

total weight of potatoes harvested (tons) = 50

total area of harvest (hectare) = 3

PY = WP / A = ?
