  1. Morgen

    A morgen was a unit of measurement of land in Germany, the Netherlands, Poland and the Dutch colonies, including South Africa and Taiwan. The size of a morgen varies from 1/2 to 2½ acres, which equals approximately 0.2 to 1 ha. It was also used in old Prussia, in the Balkans, Norway and Denmark, where it was equal to about two-thirds of an acre. The word is usually taken to be the same as the German and Dutch word for "morning". Similarly to the Imperial acre, it was approximately the amount of land tillable by one man behind an ox in the morning hours of a day. The "morgen" was commonly set at about 60-70% of the "tagwerk" referring to a full day of ploughing. In 1869, the North German Confederation fixed the morgen at a quarter hectare but in modern times most farmland work is measured in full hectares. The next lower measurement unit was the German "rute" or Imperial rod but the metric rod length of 5 metres never became popular. It is still used in Taiwan today, called "ka." 1 ka is 2934 "tsubo" or "phêng".
