PROJECTED COSTS AND RETURNS - SUGARCANE, LOUISIANA, 2001.

This report presents estimates of costs and returns associated with sugarcane production practices in Louisiana for 2001. It is part of a continuing effort to provide farmers, researchers, extension personnel, lending agencies and others working in agriculture and/or agribusiness timely planning information. Sugarcane production is unique in that it is a perennial crop grown in a rotation; processing, storage and marketing services are provided by a single entity and payments for said services are "in kind." Further, the large majority of growers are tenants, paying approximately 20 percent of the "after milling crop proceeds" (12.2% of gross production) for land. Returns shown in Table 1A-3C and in the whole farm analysis in Appendix A reflect returns to management and risk. No charges for family living expenses or management are included as a cost in this analysis.
