'fanegada' (5,475.92 sq.m)

La "fanegada" es la superficie de terreno que se puede sembrar con una "fanega" (medida de capacidad) de grano. Por lo general equivale a 5.475,92 m2, aunque puede variar de unos países a otros o incluso de unas regiones a otras. Yo lo dejaría sin traducir y le añadiría la medida en una nota.
