This tool calculates how much top dressing you need for your lawn or garden.

## Top Dressing Calculator

This calculator helps you determine the amount of top dressing material you need for your field. Simply enter the dimensions of your field (length and width in meters) and the application rate (how many kilograms per square meter are required), then click the “Calculate” button to get the result.

### How to Use the Calculator

- Enter the length of your field in meters.
- Enter the width of your field in meters.
- Enter the application rate in kilograms per square meter.
- Click the “Calculate” button.
- Your total amount of top dressing material required will be displayed in the result field.

### How It Calculates

The calculator multiplies the length by the width to determine the area of the field in square meters. It then multiplies the area by the application rate (kg per square meter) to find the total amount of material needed.

### Limitations

- The calculator assumes uniform application rate across the entire field.
- It does not account for any field anomalies or non-rectangular field shapes.
- Please ensure all measurements and rates are accurate for best results.
