Compare and select most profitable crop
Enables you to realistically compare all the crops you can raise on your farm. All
possible return and expense items are included. Three "ranges" provide you with
typical, worst case, and best possible scenarios. Both with and without debt service
results are given, plus both with number of years needed to pay off land purchase. (This
is different from "Crop returns", which is designed to help a farmer with few
records determine costs and returns of a single crop.) It's something every farmer can
useand which no doubt will cause you some surprises! AG101 $18
Crop returns
Calculates net profit per acre and for farm by either of two methods: if per acre costs
are known or not known. Also gives number of years needed to pay off land investment with
or without interest considered. AG102 $12
Determine fertilizer payback
Answers completely: At what point does adding additional fertilizer pay or not pay?
Gives extra gross and net returns per acre and per field, net profit per pound of
fertilizer, cost per pound of fertilizer, and net return per $1 of fertilizer. Five or
more different applications can be compared sidebyside. AG103 $12
Fertilizer element cost breakdowns
Provides cost of any element, such as nitrogen, per pound, per ton, per acre, and per
field as applied, plus cost of total fertilizer, such as 114612, per pound, per acre,
and per field. AG104 $12
Set up and check test plots
Helps you determine how much space you need for comparison plotsthen how to determine
your results at harvest. Also provides yield asharvested, on a dry matter basis, and
converted to your choice of moisture content. AG105 $10
Seeding rate information
Three rowcrop calculationsplus wheat "special": #1 lets you "plug
in" germination to arrive at an adjusted seeding rate per acre based on number of
"good" seeds. #2 puts seeding rate into "real world". Takes into
consideration assumed or tag percentage germination vs. actual germination and also lets
you estimate seedling mortality. Gives you true adjusted seeding rate per acre, seeds per
foot of row, and pounds of seed needed per acre. #3 is when you want a specified number of
plants per acre. You have the option of whether or not to estimate seedling mortality.
Provides pounds of seed per acre to plant, seed per foot of row, and seeding rate per
acre. Additional wheat module allows you to calculate number of kernels per bushel and
weight of 1,000 kernels in grams. AG106 $10
Accurately determine yield of any crop
Allows you to calculate quite precisely how much your crops yield. Excellent for
comparing different varieties, fertilization, and chemical applications, and for use in
check plots. You can obtain units (bushels, hundredweights, etc.) per acre at field
moisture, strictly dry matter basis, and at any moisture content you specify. Can be used
with almost every crop. AG107 $10
Wheat yield estimate
Lets you predict eventual yields weeks before harvest, and so decide if damaged crop is
worth harvesting and also if storage needs are sufficient. Designed to be used only with
wheat. AG108 $10
Calculate storage capacities, harvest losses, and populations
This is the easy way to determine shelled corn and ear corn crib and bin capacities,
plus bushels in piled shelled or ear corn. Also allows you to calculate field losses of
ear corn, shelled corn, soybeans, and grain sorghum. Lets you estimate growing plant
populations, too. AG148 $15
Applications reporter
Designed to meet the requirements of the new chemical reporting regulations. Helps you
track all chemical and fertilizer applications and aids in preparing necessary reports.
Set up on a field basis. In "Chemicals" section are 31 items that you have the
option of listing for up to eight different applications annually. Under
"Fertilizer" section are 28 items that you can list for up to eight different
applications annually. In addition, you can itemize complete soil test and tissue test
analysis results for up to five samples each per field, plus soil test and tissue test
recommendations. Program also gives you gross return/acre, total gross return, total
chemical cost/field, total application cost/field, percentage chemical cost is of gross,
percentage application cost is of gross, total fertilizer cost/field, total application
cost/field, percentage fertilizer cost is of gross, and percentage application cost is of
gross. (Note: you may also want to consider ordering AG145 Calibrate sprayers the easy
way.) AG178 $40
