33 Sources of Crop Cost of Production Data

Nick Horob

Cost of production is an important metric for all farms (obviously). This is amplified by record high cost of production we’ve seen recently.

When conducting crop and farm profitability research, I often look at cost of production data from universities (and other sources) around the US and Canada. I wanted to hightlight the list of websites that I’ve visited to conduct corn, soybean, wheat, and specialty crop cost of production research.

If you’d like to start tracking your cost of production on a per crop, field, landlord and/or entity-basis, you can sign up for a free trial of Harvest Profit below.
