Contributors Needed for UNL Custom Rate Survey

Dec. 18, 2015

Every other year the University of Nebraska Department of Agricultural Economics conducts a survey of the rates charged for custom farming operations in Nebraska. Results for the 2014 survey are published online at https://cropwatch.unl.edu/economics/customrates. Results for the 2016 survey will probably be published around June 1, 2016.

Custom operators who would like to be included in this survey can either provide their name and address at http://farm.unl.edu/custom-rate-participants or send their name and address to Roger Wilson, Farm Management Analyst, University of Nebraska, PO Box 830922, Lincoln, NE 68583-0922 or email rwilson6@unl.edu. Please call (402) 472-1771 if you have questions.

This survey is done in two parts. The first part covers spring and summer practices such as tillage, planting, and haying operations. The second part covers fall practices such as harvest and livestock operations.
