A crop profitability analysis for long-term crop investments
AbstractThe Crop Profitability Analysis (CPA) computer program is designed to help agricultural producers make long-run cropping decisions. CPA uses previously generated enterprise budgets to establish a base from which producers can analyze the potential profitability of perennial crops with establishment periods, such as orchard, berry, and vineyard crops, or the feasibility of long-term crop rotations. CPA permits up to a 20-year planning horizon and uses the economic concepts of net present value, annual equivalence, and internal rate of return to analyze the potential profitability of a given enterprise. CPA also analyzes the financial feasibility of potential investments by generating annual net cash flows.
