Peppermint Essential Oil Yield

The average fresh plant material yield of peppermint is 15-20 tons per hectare, or 7 tons (15.400 lbs.) per acre.

The average essential oil yield of peppermint is 130-150 lbs. (58-68 kg) per hectare, or 56 lbs. (25 kg) per acre.

The average dry material yield of peppermint is 3 tons per hectare, or 1,2 tons (2.645 lbs.) per acre.

Keep in mind that 1 ton = 1000 kg = 2.200 lbs. and 1 hectare = 2,47 acres = 10.000 square meters.

These average yields are annual and these figures refer to healthy and mature (older than 1 year old) plants that are managed by professional growers. Keep also in mind that there can be significant deviations from these figures, as the yield greatly depends on many parameters (variety, climate, soil condition, fertilization, irrigation, weed and pest control, harvesting, distillation methods etc.). Potential water or other types of stress can cause a significant decrease in all the above yields.
