Economics of Saskatoon berry production : a ten-acre enterprise

Description

Diversification has become a common word in the agricultural industry, as producers are looking to add value to their business operations and improve their income. Fruit production on the prairies is a diversification option that is gaining interest from new producers to the agricultural industry. A small fruit enterprise, or one combined with other farm operations, may be an alternative venture for some producers. This resource presents information to provide potential Saskatoon berry producers with an estimate of capital investment, and annual costs and returns for a ten-acre Saskatoon berry enterprise.
