Planter Costs For Alternative Farm Sizes

About This Publication

This article reports on a study of planter costs for different farm sizes. Our objective was to determine the planter size that had the lowest cost for a given farm size. Farm sizes from 400 to 4,000 acres in 400 acre increments were evaluated. Planter sizes ranged from 6-rows up to 36-rows. Planters were assumed to plant all acres with acres evenly split between corn and soybeans.
