A Cost Analysis for Establishing a Barbados Cherry (Malpighia Punicifolia) Orchard in Barbados

An analysis was performed to provide orchard establishment costs (land preparation, trees, planting, irrigation, herbicide and fertilizer) for a 3.5 acre planting. Figures are provided for trees only; trees with a simple drip irrigation system; and trees with an automated micro-sprinkler system. Local labour and local equipment costs are used. First year, per acre establishment costs were US$1,805.52 for non-irrigated; $2,247.23 for drip irrigated; and $2,430.20 for automated micro-spray plantings.
