Crop Storage Calculator

Below is Crop Storage Calculator which can help you determine how much crop is actually in your storage bins.

Although not 100% accurate the following formula has proven to be a very good measure.

Input your information in the text fields provided. Choose your crop. You'll need to provide your bin diameter. Decide whether the crop pile is flat, and if it is there is no need for a cone calculation.

If crop rises to a peak then please input peak height. If crop drops into a cone fashion then please input drop height. Input crop bushel weight*.

*If unknown use local data for that harvest year or use standard densities.
Corn 56lbs / bushel
Soybean 60lbs / bushel

*If crop pile is flat, please leave 'height of cone' and 'height inversion fields blank.
