Yield Forecasting Calculator

  • Walk the land to ensure that the stand is even, standing (not lodging) and has no many gaps
  • Reap the cobs from a measured 20 sq. metres. If the rows are at 90cm, then you should reap 22m row length, if the rows are 75cm, then measure 26.6m row length.
  • Shell the cobs, weigh the grain and determine the moisture content using a moisture meter
  • Do this for three or four separate samples at widely separate points and determine the average
  • Use the calculator below to calculate yield average estimate corrected to 1 ha and to 12.5% Moisture Content

NB* Enter correct value for Mass Grain and Moisture Content to see result


We are encouraging women to engage into farming for the betterment of their lives.

Seed Co has provided us with a stable market and technical support during the season.

We received a planter, plough and harrow from Seed Co and this greatly improved our lives as communal farmers.
