If a crop requires 1.5kg phosphorus per hectare, how many kg of manure will be required per hectare if 1kg manure contains 0.32kg of phosphorus

Answer Details

To calculate the amount of manure required per hectare, we need to use the ratio of phosphorus in manure to the amount of phosphorus required per hectare.
Given that 1kg of manure contains 0.32kg of phosphorus, we can calculate the amount of manure required to supply 1.5kg of phosphorus per hectare as follows:
1.5 kg phosphorus / 0.32 kg phosphorus per 1 kg manure = 4.69 kg manure per hectare
Therefore, the amount of manure required per hectare to supply the required amount of phosphorus is 4.69 kg.
So, (4.69kg) is the correct answer.
