useful nutrient management planning data

Nutrient management plans should be based on accurate information. Ideally, manure generation and content should be determined on individual farms. Nutrients removed by harvesting crops also vary from farm to farm. The data provided here are general guidelines based on current research and can be used in preliminary planning.

length/Weight Conversion faCtors
length: 1 inch = 2.54 cm 1yard = 0.915 meters 1 mile = 5,280 = 1,610.7 meters = 1.61 km 1 meter = 100 cm = 1,000 mm = 0.001 km 1 chain = 66 feet = 100 links = 20.1 meters = 4 rods Weights: 1 pound = 454 gm = 0.454 Kg = 16 ounces 1 ton (short) = 2,000 pounds 1 ton (long) = 2,240 pounds

more speed Conversion faCtors
1 mile per hour = 1.467 feet per second = 88 feet per minute = 26.8 meters per hour other: 1 pound per acre = 1.12 Kg/ha 1 pound per gallon = 0.119 Kg/L Parts per million (ppm) = ug/g = mg/L 1 gallon per acre = 9.35 L/ha
