What is Acre?

The acre is one of the oldest units used throughout the world for measurement of vast land parcels. It has evolved considerably over the years and has been traditionally deployed throughout the reign of the British Empire. The Anglo-Saxon acre has been defined as a strip of land which is 1 x 1/10 furlong or 40 x 4 rods which is roughly 660 x 66 feet. Used throughout the U.S. and Imperial systems, the contemporary acre equates to 43, 560 square feet and 0.4047 hectares along with 4,480 square yards and 4,047 square meters. An acre may also be defined as the area which is a furlong long and four rods wide.

Imperial units are basically systems of weights and measures that were used from 1824 onwards in Great Britain till the metric system was adopted from 1965. Defined in metric terms, the units are also a part of the Customary System in the U.S. and this has been derived from the Imperial System in Britain. Acre comes from aker, the ancient English term and this indicates open field. Acre does not have any shape which is prescribed and is sometimes abbreviated as ac too.

Acre is used worldwide as a unit for measuring land including numerous countries such as France, Spain, Canada, U.S, Germany and Jamaica along with India, Bangladesh, Pakistan and Sri Lanka. The United Kingdom has always seen widespread usage of the acre and back in the Middle Ages, an acre was classified as the area which could be ploughed by a yoke (eight) of oxen in one day. The measurement unit has always been popular and even large farms were expressed in sizes through acres instead of the more practical square mile. The acre does not come with any regular measurement indicators and it does not indicate the same area in countries where it is used regularly.

An acre in Scotland works out to 1.27 standard acres while the Irish acre equates to 1.6 U.S. or British acres. Residential plots in India have measurements in square feet while agricultural land measurements are done in hectares or acres. Bigha is the unit which is locally used in North India.
