Processing Vegetable Budgets Updated

Nate Bruce, Farm Business Management Specialist,

Enterprise budgets for processing vegetables have been updated with prices and information for 2022. You can use these budgets to estimate your production costs and returns for several different crops: pickling cucumbers, sweet corn, spinach, lima beans, snap beans, and peas. All enterprise budgets are in Excel. The first tab contains research estimated costs and returns. The second tab allows you to enter your own costs and returns.
