The Geestmorgen, also called Heider Katastermorgen, was an area measure in the Dithmarschen. The measure was a sowing measure and is to be distinguished from the simple acre. This had 15 bushels with 40 square rods each in the southern Dithmarschen and 20 bushels with 30 square rods in the northern Dithmarschen, whereby 16 bushels with 30 QR. were valid in the Lundener marshland.

  • 1 Geestmorgen = 200 square rods = 4 bushels (bushel seed)
    • 1 bushel (bushel seed) = 50 square rods
