### How do you calculate wheat yield?

What is the world record wheat yield?

How do we calculate yield?

Estimation method

1. Select an area that is representative of the paddock.
2. Do this 5 times to get an average of the crop (A)
3. Count the number of grains in at least 20 heads or pods and average (B)
4. Using Table 1 determine the grain weight for the crop concerned (C)
5. Yield in t/ha = (A × B × C) / 10,000.
