Ag Budget Calculator (ABC) Program

The Agricultural Budget Calculator (ABC) Program is ready to use in modifying or creating your crop budgets for 2023. Learn more at or go directly to the ABC program at

The new Agricultural Budget Calculator (ABC) is an enterprise budgeting tool developed by the University of Nebraska–Lincoln Department of Agricultural Economics and the Center for Ag Profitability. ABC is a free online program where farm managers and producers can download UNL’s budgets, then modify them with their own prices of material inputs, field operations, costs of machinery, repairs, labor, and other expenses, plus add their projected revenue to calculate returns above cash and all costs. Cost of production calculations and net revenue projections can be estimated by crop or by field or farm.

Online training sessions for new and existing users of the ABC program are scheduled now. For more information and to register, go to:
