About the Webinar

This webinar will showcase a crop budgeting tool that organic crop producers can use to evaluate both the cost of production and expected net return of organic production for various crops. The budgeting tool can also be used to compute the costs and returns for producers looking to make a transition into organic production. The featured tool makes it easy to develop a crop budget for almost any crop and production practice including both organic and conventional crop production. The budgeting tool has a built-in database of inputs and machinery costs. Producers just need to pick what operations and inputs are needed to produce a crop and the budgeting tool will calculate the cost per acre to produce that crop and the expected net return.
