The Soybean Yield Calculator is a simple and useful tool to estimate the average productivity of a soybean crop based on several parameters. This calculator is especially useful for soy producers who want to estimate the average productivity of their crops and plan the harvest and marketing of their products.
We present two types of grain yield calculator, a complete one that requires all crop data, and also a simplified one that calculates with a default value popular among soybean producers.
Specific Soybean Yield Calculator
To use the soybean yield calculator, follow these simple steps:
- Enter the planted area of the crop in hectares.
- Enter the number of plants per linear meter.
- Enter the number of pods per plant.
- Enter the number of kernels per pod.
- Enter the weight of one thousand grains in grams.
- Click on the “Calculate Productivity” button.
- Check the result fields for average yield, total number of pods, total number of grains and weight of one grain.
How does the productivity calculator work?
The Soybean Yield Calculator uses a simple formula to estimate the average productivity of a soybean crop based on several parameters, including the planted area, the number of plants per linear meter, the number of pods per plant, the number of grains per pod and the weight of a thousand grains.
This formula is based on years of observation and experience of soybean farmers and is widely used around the world. The most common formula for calculating the average soybean yield is:
Average productivity (kg/ha) = (Total number of grains * Weight of one grain) / Planted area
To calculate the total number of kernels, we multiply the total number of pods by the number of kernels per pod. To calculate the weight of a bean, we divide the weight of a thousand grains by 1000 and the number of grains per pod.
The Soybean Yield Calculator implements this formula and displays the average yield result, the total number of pods, the total number of beans, and the weight of one bean in result fields.
Simple Productivity Calculator
The simple calculation of the average soybean yield is based on an empirical formula that uses the planted area as an input. This formula estimates average productivity based on the experience and observation of soy producers over the years.
This formula estimates the average soybean productivity in kilograms per hectare based on the planted area in hectares. For example, if a soybean producer plants 10 hectares of soybeans, the expected average productivity would be around 1,581 kg/ha, calculated as follows:
- Average productivity (kg/ha) = 2.5 * square root of 10
- Average productivity (kg/ha) = 2.5 * 3,162
- Average productivity (kg/ha) = 7,905
