Enter the row spacing (ft) and the vine spacing (ft) into the Vine Density Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Vine Density. 

Vine Density Formula

The following two example problems outline the steps and information needed to calculate the Vine Density.

VD = 43,560/(RS*VS)


  • VD is the Vine Density (vines per acre)
  • RS is the row spacing (ft) 
  • VS is the vine spacing (ft) 

To calculate the wine density, divide 43,560 by the product of the row spacing and vine spacing.

How to Calculate Vine Density?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Vine Density.

  1. First, determine the row spacing (ft). 
  2. Next, determine the vine spacing (ft). 
  3. Next, gather the formula from above = VD = 43,560/(RS*VS).
  4. Finally, calculate the Vine Density.
  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.

row spacing (ft) = 2

vine spacing (ft) = 4

VD = 43,560/(RS*VS) = ?
