Tools to Help You Make a Decision on What to Plant

With the late harvest in Ohio and other areas affected by all of the heavy rain and bad planting weather, many farmers face crucial decisions on what crops to plant.  Should they take a risk on planting corn, switch to soybeans or collect insurance on prevented-planting acreage.

You can check out these tools to help you in that decision.  Ohio State University has a spreadsheet to help you with your decision and the Iowa State University has an article comparing likely receipts from late-planted crops versus cash from receiving prevented-planting insurance.
