1. 2015 crop budgets.
What will it cost you to grow corn and soybeans next year? The University of Nebraska has developed some cost-only budgets to help you estimate those costs. And along with the usual corn, soybeans and wheat, there are also budgets for conventional cover crops and no-till cover crops.
No two farmers will manage their farms the same way and no two farms will have the same production costs. These cost-only budgets are representative of typical systems, said Roger Wilson, Nebraska extension farm management/enterprise budget analyst and co-editor of the 2015 Crop Budgets.
"The Excel version of each budget allows you to input numbers specific to your operation to better approximate your costs." They also allow for testing alternative practices that would affect total production costs. Budgets for 2014 are also available for reference.
