Each year, the Alberta government forecasts of the cost of producing the most commonly grown field crops across the province. Regional forecasts are based on current cost of production information from the AgriProfit$ program, and estimates of expected revenues and costs from various sources.

Cropping Alternatives crop budgets are designed to assist grain, oilseed, and pulse crop producers make better crop planning decisions using information from their own farm. These updates support the commitment of Alberta Agriculture to the crops industry for decision tools to address both profit and risk management.

The updated budgets are soil zone specific and cover a variety of dryland and irrigation crops. Estimated costs for the 2023 growing season are included, but can be modified to better represent production, prices and costs specific to a farming operation.
