Southeast Missouri: 2018 Crop Budget Updates Ready For Your Numbers

The 2018 Southeast Missouri Crop Budgets and Crop Budgets with Crop Rent Analysis, can be found below. The crop budgets are in both Excel and PDF formats.

With the Crop Budget Spreadsheet, you will find 2 crop decision aid worksheets to assist in making decisions on which crops to plant based on variable production costs and changes in yields and prices.

  • The Crop Decision Aid – Breakeven Worksheet calculates the yield and price between two crops that give equal net returns.
  •  Crop Decision Aid – Net Returns Worksheet calculates the net return between two crops based on changes in yield and price.

The Two Summary Worksheets compare the economic returns of irrigated and non-irrigated crops. First develop a budget for each crop that will be in the analysis.  Update crop yields and prices in rows 5 and 6.

The budgets will be updated periodically as more information is made available on input costs.

If you have questions, contact David Reinbott, MU Extension agriculture business specialist.

Here are the Excel versions:
