Input costs for 2009 are projected to be two to three times higher than previous years, according to the University of Nebraska-Lincoln (UNL) Extension. To help producers keep their heads above water during these challenging times, UNL Extension is offering online resources targeted to decrease production costs.
The Web site, Surviving High Input Costs in Crop Production, houses articles and information chosen by UNL Extension specialists and educators to help producers increase profits.
On the site, you can access current articles to help you combat high input costs in the following areas:
  • Grain Storage and Handling
  • Irrigation
  • Pest Management
  • Soil Fertility
Information will also be available on crop systems and economics and marketing in the near future.
Additionally the site offers 2009 crop budgets for 11 crops.
