Budgets / Cost Estimates

NCSU Ag Economist, Dr. Olya Rysin, has recently developed 2 new strawberry budgets and revised the conventional budget. One of the new budgets is based on an organic production system, and conforms to all organic standards. The third budget is  an intermediate production system that uses cover crops and compost instead of fumigation. The latter system may be easier for step for a grower looking for an alternative to fumigation but not yet able to give up other conventional inputs.

For a look at how to use the budgets watch this YouTube video
