‘Cropping Alternatives crop budgets are soil zone specific and cover a variety of dryland and irrigation crops,’ explains Manglai, production crops economist with Alberta Agriculture and Forestry.

‘Estimated costs for the 2021 growing season are included, but they can be modified to better represent production, prices and costs specific to a farming operation.’

The updated budgets are designed to assist grain, oilseed and pulse crop producers to make better crop planning decisions by using information from their own farm and soil type.

Manglai adds that these updates support the commitment of the ministry to the crops industry by providing decision tools that address both profit and risk management.
