Projected 2014 Rice Cash Flow Model
Projected 2014 Rice Cash Flow Model
The Projected 2014 Rice Farm Cash Flow Model was developed to assist producers in planning for the 2014 crop year. The model is an Excel spreadsheet which allows rice producers to enter projected acreage, yield, market price and production cost data for 2014 to estimate net returns above variable production costs and to easily evaluate the impact of changing percent of base planted on net returns. This model does include the Price Loss Coverage (PLC) Program option in the 2014 Farm Bill.
