Impact of Increased Fuel Prices on Profitability of Selected Crops in Big Horn Basin of Wyoming


Publication #: B-1192
Date Published: 6-2008

Publication Author(s):
Sara Skalsky
James Jacobs

This University of Wyoming College of Agriculture bulletin is designed to help producers and others evaluate the impact of fuel and nitrogen prices on the cost of individual field operations and the profitability of selected crops in the Big Horn Basin of Wyoming. This is accomplished through a series of spreadsheets in B-1192, a publication of the UW College of Agriculture's Department of Agricultural and Applied Economics. The Fuel Impact spreadsheet estimates increased fuel cost per acre for selected field operations and equipment associated with per-gallon price increases for gasoline and diesel. This is followed by a series of budget spreadsheets for selected crops in the Big Horn Basin. These budgets can be used to evaluate the profitability of individual crops.
