1 WSU Tree Fruit Enterprise Budgets A powerful tool to track and manage your expenses R. Karina Gallardo & Mykel Taylor Washington State University

2 Content 1.Budget Process 2.Where to find these studies? 3.Assumptions made 4.Study components 5.Summary of findings 6.Use of budgets

3 Budget Process Convene a group of growers – The budgets are not a survey – Representation of location, size of operations, and experience

4 Budget Process (2) Determine the production scenario – Puts everyone on the same page when it comes to our assumptions

5 Budget Process (3)

6 Where is it?

7 Cost Estimates of Establishing and Producing Sweetheart Cherries are available in both Excel and PDF

8 Assumptions for Sweet Cherry Study Sweetheart on Mazzard rootstock Block size: 10 acres Orchard size: 150 acres Irrigation system  Overhead and under tree drip sprinklers  Public irrigation district Architecture  Two dimensional system (planar canopy), randomly trained w/18-in radius from tree center  In-row space: 10 feet  Between row: 16 feet Life of planting: 25 years Density: 272 trees per acre

9 Summary of Costs Sweetheart Cherries by Categories ($/acre) Fixed Costs

10 Estimated Net Returns per Acre at Various Prices and Yield – Sweetheart Cherries Price ($/ton) Yield (tons/acre) 8001,6002,4003,2004, ,379-4,779-3,179-1, ,060-2, ,5406, , ,8588,65813, , ,37613,77620, ,1062,89410,89418,89426, ,7884,81214,41224,01233,612 [1] Includes amortized establishment costs.

11 Cost Estimates of Establishing and Producing Gala apples are available in both Excel and PDF

12 Assumptions for Gala Study Gala on 9 series Dwarf rootstock Block size: 40 acres Orchard size: 160 acres Irrigation system  Overhead and under tree drip sprinklers  Public irrigation district Architecture  Two dimensional system (planar canopy), randomly trained w/18-in radius from tree center  In-row space: 4 feet  Between row: 10 feet Life of planting: 15 years Density: 1,089 trees per acre

13 Summary of Costs By Categories ($/acre) Fixed Costs

14 Estimated Net Returns per Acre at Various Prices and Yield - Gala Price ($/bin) Yield (bins/acre) ,193-2,318-1, ,381-1, , , ,8052, ,7422,9924, ,4302,8054,1805, ,3673,8675,3676,867 [1] Includes amortized establishment costs. [2] Assumes pack-out of 20 packs/bin (all grades) and 925 lb/bin

15 COMING NEXT Anjou pears Bartlett –cannery- pears Organic Gala apples Honeycrisp apples

16 REMEMBER: Use of These Budgets Growers –Starting point for comparison and creation of own budgets Policy makers –Educational tool for understanding the different cost centers in tree fruit production Lenders and investors –Illustration on operating loans and projected costs and returns Other researchers –Financial feasibility of new technologies
