Crop Decision Making Tools

Forage Seed Mixture Calculator (On-line Version) Grassland species are normally seeded in mixtures rather than monocultures. This calculator will calculate a mix and estimate a seed density for drills or broadcast seedings for any grouping of forage species in the calculator list
Cereal Seeding Calculator This calculator determines how much seed is needed to plant a cereal crop with the desired plant density and includes seed drill calibration information.
Peas, Pulses and other large seeds Calculator This calculator determines how much seed is needed to plant a crop with the desired plant density and includes seed drill calibration information.

Alberta weather and climate data The AgroClimatic Information Service (ACIS) provides access to Meteorological data, and maps derived from more than 330 stations.
Alberta Farm Input Prices Monthly survey of prices of farm inputs including presentation of survey results in graphical and tabular formats over a five year period.
Alberta Management Insights (AMI) Crop variety and yield information is reported by producers to AFSC and organized by township, soil zone, and crop risk area.
Compare Crop Varieties Yield performance results for cereal, oilseed and pulse crops grown at specific locations. 2010 data will be available soon.
Grains, Forage and Straw Nutrient Use Calculator This calculator will help you to understand how much nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium, sulphur, and calcium your crop will use for a given yield.
Irrigation Water Allocation Calculator This calculator estimates how long it will take to use up an allocation of water.
Rural Water Quality Information Tool This on-line tool assesses the quality and suitability of raw water sources for livestock, irrigation or mix water for chemical spraying.
Variety Description and Relative Yield Report Yield performance results for cereal, oilseed and pulse crops grown under varying growing conditions. For several crops, yield data is expressed on the basis of individual growth environment productivity (low, medium, high and very high). 2010 data will be available soon.

Crop Enterprise Cost and Return Calculator This calculator allows you to estimate costs and revenues on a per acre basis for a set of selected crops within a given soil zone.
Crop Returns Calculator This calculator helps managers to evaluate crop enterprise profitability by calculating production costs, breakeven selling prices, gross margins, and returns to equity.
CropChoice$ Computer Software This software helps crop producers predict revenues and margins for their crop enterprise, as well as the chance of achieving those levels.
Money Map Farmers can now see how their yields vary across a field, year after year.

Grain Shrinkage Calculator Calculates the loss of volume and weight which occurs whenever wet grain is dried.
Test Weight Converter Converting back and forth between kg/hL and lb/bushel
Dollars/Bushel : Dollars/Tonne Converter Converting between Dollars/Bushel and Dollars/Tonne for various grains
Bushel/Tonne Converter Converting between Bushel / Tonne for various grains

AFFIRM V2.0 Software This software helps crop producers make fertilizer nutrient decisions based on soil test results, crops to be grown, soil moisture conditions, agro-climatic regions and economic factors of crop prices and fertilizer nutrient costs.
MMP V0.310 Software This software helps producers make manure nutrient decisions based on livestock operation, storage capacity, application equipment, landbase, soil test results and crop selection
Manure Transportation Calculator The Transportation Calculator can be used to determine the net impact of using (transporting and applying) manure or chemical fertilizer as a nutrient source in selected fields under different rotational systems.
