CANADA - The 2013 Cropping Alternatives crop budgets are available from Alberta Agriculture and Rural Development, to help with any last minute changes to crop plans that may be influencing seeding decisions.

Cropping Alternatives crop budgets are soil zone specific and cover a variety of dryland and irrigation crops. Estimated costs for the 2013 growing season are included, but can be modified to better represent production, prices and costs specific to a farming operation.

Cropping Alternatives crop budgets from Agriculture and Rural Development are designed to assist grain, oilseed, pulse and special 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 can be downloaded free of charge from Alberta Agriculture’s website.
