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
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.
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.
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
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.
