cost of arkansas rice farming

A large percentage of their costs are related to land, fertilizer and equipment, but there are many other expenses that go into producing a high-yielding crop. This graph shares many of the costs that Arkansas farmers experience, on a per acre basis, for one of the state’s crops – rice.
