  Hectare - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Comité International des Poids et Mesures classifies the hectare as a unit that, although it is not part of the International System of Units, is expected to continue in use indefinitely, having an exact definition in terms of an SI base unit.
Thus a hectare is the area of a square plot of land where each side of the square is 100 metres, that is, a square hectometer.
The hectare is commonly used in many countries, especially in domains concerned with land planning and management such as agriculture, forestry, and town planning where the use of square metres would be cumbersome and unnecessarily precise.

A hectare (symbol ha) is a metric unit of surface area, equal to 100 ares (the name is a contraction of the SI prefix hecto + are).
It is a non-SI unit currently accepted (although discouraged) for use with the SI.
100 hectares is equal to one square kilometre.

One hectare is a square hectometer, that is, the area of a square 100 meters on each side: exactly 10 000 square meters or approximately 107 639.1 square feet, 11 959.9 square yards, or 2.471 054 acres.
Depending on local conditions, this could be as little as 60 acres or as much as 180 acres (24-72 hectares).
This is roughly 12 000 acres, 5000 hectares, or 18.75 square miles.

 Unasylva - Vol. 1, No. 1 - The Growth of the World's Forests
The smallness of the stands of timber per hectare in the north is due chiefly to the small diameters of the trees which the sites, conditioned by soil and climate, are capable of producing.
Even today, true yields per hectare are probably higher than is generally indicated by statistics which are often based on mere estimates or on methods of computation which are themselves in the course of development.
The task of the silviculturist, therefore, consists in seeing to it that the extracted material is duly replaced, that annual growth occurs in the required quantity on a reduced number of stems, and lastly, that both these objectives are attained at the same time.

The are, hectare and their symbols were adopted by the CIPM in 1879.
In 1978 the CIPM decided it would be better to express all areas in square meters, and, while the are and hectare could continue to be used for the time being, they should not be introduced where not presently used.
In the United States, however, the hectare is still legally considered a unit within SI.

 IRRI - International Rice Research Institute
Scientists from the Yunnan Agricultural University and IRRI found that intercropping achieved 92-99 percent control of rice blast and produced 0.5-1.0 ton more grain per hectare compared with indica rice monocropping, which is the traditional way of growing rice in the region.
In 1998, farmers in Shiping County joined a demonstration trial on the sustainable control of pests and diseases through varietal diversification by planting four rows of hybrid rice and one row of glutinous rice in a 700-hectare rice field.
Support for the strategy grew when rice yields increased by 0.6 to 0.9 ton per hectare when varietal diversification was carried out in the Jiangshui towns of Xizhuang and Miandian, further north, on a consolidated 13-hectare farm in 1998.

Balanced nutrition involving an appropriate mix of organic and inorganic is a viable option to enhance and sustain the yield of this crop.

Therefore, application of recommended levels of fertilizer nutrients should be integrated with farm yard manure at 10 tonnes per hectare rate per year or at least in alternate years.

 6. Technical Change in Wetland Rice Agriculture
Consequently, the prevailing rate per hectare for plowing and harrowing by a two-wheel tractor (including some hoeing) in 198'7 is competitive with other tech-niques in Majalengka, but low wages make tractor rental a less profitable venture in the other areas of Java.
Labor use per hectare in earlier periods is estimated by assessing the apparent impacts on labor requirements per task resulting from technical change, as documented in the work dis-cussed above.
In 1969 yields on sawah in Java were 2.6 tons of unmilled rice per hectare; by 1987, yields had increased to about 5 tons of gabah per hectare.
