Crops Budgets from NC State University from ARE Department
Farming is a very demanding profession. Farmers have to wear many hats including being a marketer of agricultural commodities. To do that there are several bits of information they need to know including the cost of producing those commodities. A good place to go to get that information for field crops is the NC State University Agricultural & Resource Economics (ARE) Department’s website. In fact, Derek Washburn, NC Farm School Program Associate of the ARE Department conducted a program several weeks ago at the Pasquotank County Center for growers and others about these crop budgets that he helped develop. Crop budgets for corn, soybean, and wheat can be obtained by visiting the CALS Enterprise Budgets page.
