New Machinery Cost Estimates and Planting Costs

About This Publication

New machinery cost estimates were released on farmdoc in June 2003. These cost estimates are calculated using an economic-engineering approach based on buying new equipment and holding all machines, except combines, for ten years (combines are held for seven years). Estimates for tractor, field, planting, forage, and combining operations are in the management section of farmdoc (click here). In addition, online Machinery Costs Tools are available that allow users to change input so that costs more closely reflect operations on a particular farm.
