2011 NRCS Utah Conservation Practice Cost Data

2011 NRCS Utah Conservation Practice Cost Data


The Excel workbooks below provide basic information on some of the typical costs of implementation for NRCS conservation practices in Utah. These files are intended to serve as a starting point for any producer who is interested in implementing a practice but who is unfamiliar with the practice or is unsure of how much money and other resources he or she could expect to spend in implementing that practice.

Cost data workbooks from this set can be saved to a local computer and then edited to match the specific circumstances for a particular conservation project. These data sets do not include all possible costs or input information and should be considered as a framework to which additional information can be added for evaluation purposes.

In addition to cost data workbooks for typical conservation practice scenarios, you will find below an additional workbook, “2011 NRCS Utah Conservation Practice Component Costs,” that shows typical costs for many Utah conservation practice components. Some of the costs included in this workbook are based on local prices, while others reflect regional or national suppliers’ prices. Because the market prices of some inputs are volatile, it is recommended that a producer double-check with his or her preferred suppliers to confirm current prices before making financial and economic decisions.

The following documents require Microsoft Excel.
