2023 Fresh Market Vegetable Enterprise Budgets

Nate Bruce, Farm Business Management Specialist, nsbruce@udel.edu

Enterprise budgets for fresh market vegetables have been updated with prices and information for 2023. You can use these budgets to estimate your production costs and returns for several different crops: bell peppers, broccoli, cabbage, cantaloupe, seedless watermelon, sweet corn (hand harvested), tomato, and potato. 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.
