To pay the 100 plus, what gross do you need each year to even net anything in YOUR pocket?
Do you need 400 bucks? I mean, historically what are you producing? A bit lower prices and a return to typical dry weather for your area and one year could do a guy in.
Seriously, If I were you, I would contemplate renting out my owned land for that. For you to net 100 plus, would take a consistent, good crop, no? Why not rent out your land to the dummies, wait for them to go broke, then jump back in.
Then you could spend ALL your time on the boat...
Its reel sickle, this is western Canada, we do not grow corn, nor do we get six or eight subsidy checks a year, so yeah, 100 dollar rent is obscene.
Is that something you would consider? Renting out and taking a hiatus? Cuz NETTING 100 plus an acre while PAYING 100 plus rent and all the inputs is iffy, IMO.
I wish someone would offer me 100 plus. I would too be in a boat all summer.
