Comparison of Conventional and Organic Crop Rotations (Spreadsheet Tool)

by Michael Langemeier

This spreadsheet compares conventional and organic rotations over a ten-year horizon.  Specifically, net returns are compared for a conventional corn/soybean rotation, a conventional corn/soybean/wheat rotation, and an organic corn/soybean/wheat rotation.

**A corresponding article comparing the long-run net returns to land of conventional corn/soybean and corn/soybean/wheat crop rotations to that of an organic corn/soybean/wheat rotation can be found here.
