Please note that the term "hectare" also refers to the tithe - 1 hectare. equal to 11/12 of tithing. Old measures long forgotten and not used, although their names there are, for example, in literary works. You may have heard of what a mile, fathom, cubit, step – all these measures had a certain value. Verst is 500 fathoms, or 1066,8 m step is equal to 71 cm In the old days, long distances measured by miles. Today we can use the formula for calculating the area and find the product of length and width of the plot.
Keep in mind that one hectare is an area with sides of 100 x 100 m or 10,000 sq. m. hectares to calculate the acres, you get 100 acres, because the acres is 100 sq. m. Previously, in order to calculate such a large plot of land, farmers used wooden cubit. This measure differed in purpose and size, for example, oblique seven feet 2.48 m, or primaries fathom - 1,76 m. Later for these purposes to use the rope.
Calculate large areas of land with the help of sophisticated technological devices, for example, a GPS receiver, fitted to the car. Using the GPS Navigator you will be able to objectively assess the boundaries of the area and specify its location. Denoting field boundaries, create e-card - enter data into the computer.
To view the actual size of parcel, use of satellite navigation systems. For agricultural land, such a system can be very useful. You will be able to clarify the specifics of each field to examine the yield, and the recorded information to use for future crops. Plan the schedules of work, needs in equipment, fuel, seeds and fertilizers. This system can be suitable for gardening, because, calculating the yield, you can determine the "value" of each part separately.
