1 hectare


The hectare is useful for measuring areas of farms and ranches.

For examples, a small farmer could have about 5 hectares of land to cultivate the land.

Suppose the average size of a house is 2000 square feet. Then 107639.1 divided by 2000 is equal to 53.81.

Therefore, you will need to put 54 houses next to one another to get to 1 hectare.
