Cotton Precision Agriculture Investment Decision Aid

Share on

The Cotton Precision Agriculture Investment Decision Aid (CPAIDA) is an interactive computerized decision aid that is designed to help you evaluate the yield gains and input savings required to pay for investment in precision farming equipment. Using partial budgeting and break-even analysis, CPAIDA allows you to develop a custom analysis of the purchase decision based on your farm situation. CPAIDA features

  • Easy point and click operation
  • Includes default input costs to serve as a starting point for the user
  • Sensitivity analysis from changing cotton and input prices

Users are encouraged to obtain current price quotes for the equipment they select rather than use default values in order to more accurately estimate equipment costs.
