Enterprise budgets for producing pumpkins using either plastic and drip irrigation or no-till have been created for the 2023 growing year. Returns for pumpkins are given in either pounds per acre or pumpkins per acre if selling directly to consumers. You can use these budgets to estimate your production costs and returns. The 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. Access the Pumpkin Budget Excel file here
