# Calculations

Use your calculator and these formulas to quickly figure exact acreage, yields and storage capacity.

## ACREAGE

• Corn, Soybeans and Sorghum (row length, ft.) x (row width, in.) x (no. or rows) ÷ 522,720 = acres
• Wheat (row length, ft.) x (width of harvest strip, ft.) ÷ 43,560 = acres

## YIELD

• Corn-Grain (100 – harvest moisture) x (lbs. grain harvested) x (110.465) ÷ (row length, ft.) ÷ (row width, in.) ÷ (no. rows harvested) = bu./A. of corn at 15.5% moisture
• Corn-Silage (100 – actual %p silage moisture) x ( green wt. silage, lbs./A.) ÷ (30) = lbs./A. of silage adjusted to 70% moisture
• Soybeans (100 – harvest moisture) x (lbs. grain harvested) x (100.138) ÷ (row length, ft.) ÷ (row width, in.) ÷ (no. rows harvested) = bu./A. of soybeans at 13% moisture
• Sorghum (100 – harvest moisture) x (lbs. grain harvested) x (6078.14) ÷ (row length, ft.) ÷ (row width, in.) ÷ (no. rows harvested) = lbs./A. of sorghum at 14% moisture

## STORAGE CAPACITY

Corn, Soybeans and Sorghum

• Round bin: (bin diameter, ft.) x (bin diameter, ft.) x (depth, ft.) x (.6283) = bu. stored
• Rectangular storage: (width, ft.) x (length, ft.) x (depth, ft.) x (.8) = bu. Stored
