Hi everyone,

I'm new on this forum and I wanted to get an opinion of those who frequent this forum. If you are a crop farmer, I'd like to get your opinion on this farmland finance calculator. I built this in hopes of it being used and useful for the farming community but I'm not sure its hitting home as much as I hoped it would. It may be a little bit over people's heads. The idea is that it is supposed to let people enter in all of their information and projections before buying a piece of land and based on the inputs it would spit out a projected rate of return on the farmland. The neat thing is it lets a person project a low, mid and high crop price as well as crop production in order to see how different revenue scenarios may play out.

Anyways, let me know if you have any questions and please share your opinion on what you like about it and what you think could be improved. Thanks,
