Planting Profits® provides the greatest benefit to growers with diversified operations and some flexibility in their rotations…
Consider this: for a grower with eight fields who farms four different crops with some flexibility in rotations, just considering crop type, there are over 60,000 possible crop/field combinations!
Allowing for required rotations and other restrictions there is still probably more than 30,000 possible crop/field combinations.
There’s simply no way for a grower to figure out the most profitable crop/field combinations – not through intuition, trial and error, spreadsheets, or recordkeeping software. More
To further complicate production planning, there’s other considerations beyond crop type. These include variety, previous crop (in the field), estimated yield and variance, variable production costs, rotations, forward sales, price forecasts and price variance, crop insurance, etc. When these factors are considered all at once, many large and mid-size growers face a bewildering array of possible crop/field/acreage combinations in terms of income, risk, rotations, and resources.
The solution is here. It’s called Planting Profits® , and it’s a game changer. More
is a new and innovative production planning tool developed to help growers with these complex production planning decisions. In seconds
Planting Profits® can analyze all
possible combinations of crops and acreage/field assignments and pinpoint the most profitable ones based
on agronomic input, forecasted prices, the grower’s management preferences and any other constraint or
condition worth considering.
Then compare crop mixes based on expected income, risk, asset utilization, etc.
Select the strategy that works best for you and move on to final field work, purchasing inputs and planting. After being set-up once, Planting Profits® is essentially ready to help you develop next season’s production plan.
