We’ve added a standalone domain to the free per acre profit/loss calculator we’ve built here: www.HarvestProfit.com
We want to make it as easy as possible for you to play with and learn from this tool. While the sizing is not perfect, the calculator should work from a tablet device.
The calculator is profiled in this blog post: http://www.rentthefarm.com/introducing-rentthefarms-harvest-profit-matrix
If you have a farm for rent, this is a valuable tool that will allow you to stress test possible P&L scenarios for your land as the calculator includes the impact of indemnity payments in a low yield and/or low price environment.
If you do have a farm for rent, be sure to look at new crop prices when analyzing farm rent terms. For an example, many buyers are currently paying a $7.50 cash price for old crop corn and less than $6.00 for new crop corn. Understanding year-to-year price differences is just one factor in determining a fair and mutally-profitable rent rate for both parties.
