Plant Population=
Area of farmland/spacing

Plant population= (3 hectares × 10,000m²/hectare)/ 1m × 0.5m

Plant population= 10,000m²/0.5m²

Plant population= 60,000

(3b)
Land area: 5 hectares= 50,000m²
Spacing: 1m×1m = 1m²
Germination Percentage: 90%

Plant population(maize) = (50,000m²/1m²) × (90/100)

Plant population= 50,000 × 0.9

Plant population= 45,000
