Calculating Your Cost of Production in Cropping Systems
Knowing the production costs of your crops is a prerequisite for determining how well your farm business is doing. It enables you to evaluate how efficiently resources are being used in your farm operation, to predict how your business will respond to specific changes, and how to make other useful decisions for attaining your goals. Cody Miller, Ag and Natural Resources Extension Agent for the Phillips-Rooks District will take you through the calculations of determining your cost of production in cropping systems. He will use corn as the example, however, all other crops can be applied.
Leasing Arrangements Survey
The Phillips-Rooks Extension District conducts a Leasing Arrangements Survey in the counties of Phillips and Rooks each year. The most recent leasing survey was completed in December 2020. Each county randomly mailed 50 surveys to landowners/tenants in each of the counties with each township represented. The surveys were then compiled and summarized in individualized county reports.
