AgriProfit$ Cropping Alternatives has been updated for 2017. The crop-budgeting tool allows producers to project costs, margins and break-even yields for potential cropping choices.
The data is presented by soil zones, with a mix of cereals, oilseeds, pulses and forage crops for each zone. Crop budgets include a projection of individual itemized variable costs as well as a common fixed cost component.
It’s recommended users first fill out the individual production costs and returns page included with the Cropping Alternatives publication. Producers can tweak costs and prices “based on their regional experience, homework and the practices of their farm.”
The tool can be found at agriculture.alberta.ca.
