resource for Washington, Oregon and Idaho wine and juice grape growers to automatically
calculate the costs of producing grapes.
There are sixteen Calculators: Four Calculator types and four production years.
Each Calculator has all four production years on the form, so you can calculate
all production years or calculate select production years.
Before You Begin
The Cost-Of-Production Calculators require you to enter your actual production
costs into the numerical fields. If you do not know your actual costs, the
calculators provide industry average figures as default costs.
For the most accurate results, it will be helpful to have your costs on-hand
before you begin. View the Production Cost Figures Needed.
Please review the Calculator FAQ to answer questions about the Calculators.
|Choose the calculator you want to use.
|Follow the instructions at the top of each page as you enter your costs. If you do not know your costs, you may use the default costs pre-entered into the fields. The first two pages - Capital, Production, Vineyard Spacing and Materials Costs are required.
|Once you have entered your information, click CALCULATE.
|The calculator will determine your production costs on a Summary Results Page that you can save to your computer or print out for your records. From the Summary Results Page, you can edit your costs or begin a new calculator. You may also print out the Summary or save it to your computer.
Saving Your Results
The Cost-Of-Production Calculators automatically retains your cost data,
for one calculator, up to one year, through a cookie placed on your computer.
If you delete the Calculator cookie, your costs will be deleted and you will
have to re-enter the costs. The last cost production figures that you enter
will be the ones retained.
The Results Summary Page may be printed or saved to your computer.
