Description:
Overall, our results suggest a ban of GR sugarbeet will have a negative impact on profitability for Wyoming sugarbeet producers. Average profitability would decrease while risk for an operation would increase. The loss of GR sugarbeet can create more risk for an operation due mainly to the lower productivity of conventional beets. Dry beans are the most profitable crop on average after conventional and GR sugarbeet. Corn is a relatively risky crop compared to the other options, although it has the highest maximum potential profit. These results suggest that the ability to adjust crop acreages can help reduce the negative impacts on profits compared to the per-acre analysis reported previously.
