Measuring Your Crop

Use a measuring tape to measure the width and length of each fruit or vegetable crop growing area.  Multiply the width by the length to give you the area.  Measurements can be taken in either feet or metres, but please select the correct units on the website when logging your crop (please see figure 1 for details).

If you are logging a fruit tree we need to estimate the area of ground that your tree covers (this the tree canopy).  All we need to do this is the distance from the tree trunk to farthest leaves (please see figure 2).
