Slide 2

Session Agenda Economics of natural agribusiness. Neely-Kinyon long haul revolution examine. Natural spending plans. 2008 upgrades. Financial matters of transitioning.

Slide 3

Neely-Kinyon Organic Study The Neely-Kinyon Research Farm is situated in SW Iowa (Greenfield) Focus on looking at Three Production Systems Conventional corn-soybean pivot Organic corn-soybean-oat/horse feed Organic corn-soybean-oat/hay Organic trimming frameworks were built up in 1998; ensured natural in 2000.

Slide 4

Yields, by Crop and Rotation, 2000-2004

Slide 5

Estimated Fieldwork, by Rotation, 2000-2004

Slide 6

Production Costs by Crop & Rotation, 2000-2004

Slide 7

Returns to Land & Management, by Crop and Rotation, 2000-2004 Iowa normal costs utilized every year; least cost was the credit rate.

Slide 8

Yes, yet… That's an exploration cultivate and doesn't mirror my ranch. Other than the ordinary C-Sb isn't generally customary. Reaction: Developed the Iowa Organic Budgets (Fm-1876) to speak to state expenses and returns. Changed Iowa Crop Production Budgets (Fm-1712) to use as an examination.

Production Costs by Crop & Rotation

Slide 12

Returns to Land & Management Prices: $2.15,$6.00; $4.50, $13.60, $2.30, $90

Slide 13

Yes, yet … With the ethanol blast and higher corn and soybean costs, natural generation no longer has a financial favorable position to routine agribusiness. Other than customary corn has higher yields than the Extension production appears.

Production Costs by Crop & Rotation

Slide 16

Returns to Land & Management Prices: $5.00, $12.00; $10.00, $23.40, $5.25, $190

Slide 17

Yes, however… Government program installments are excluded. Reply: At current higher costs, there are no administration program installments aside from direct installments and those are the same paying little heed to what is developed.

Slide 18

Bottom Line when all is said in done , very much overseen natural turns are more beneficial than all around oversaw ordinary corn-soybean revolutions… with or without premiums around the state with or without government program installments. Given high corn costs, natural frameworks that lose all their value premiums will be less gainful than the routine framework.

Slide 19

Bottom Line However, as manure, pesticides, seed, and so on increment in cost, natural frameworks might be financially aggressive even without cost premiums. Natural creation is the great hazard/compensate circumstance. You hazard productivity amid the move to get much higher returns once the framework is up and running.

Slide 20

Questions on Profitability of Organic Production?

Slide 21

Organic Agriculture … Making the move…

Slide 22

Organic Transition Economics Step 1: build up a move creation arrange… Example – You acquired a 240-section of land ranch. It is as of now in a corn-soybean pivot. You need to move into organics. You choose to move field-by-field.

Slide 23

Field Plan For straightforwardness, Assume you can isolate the 240 sections of land into 4, 60-section of land fields. Also, you will deliver ordinary and transitioning crops on a similar ranch.

Returns to Land & Management Prices: traditional - natural costs once ensured
