The Interactive Sustainable Blackberry Budget is a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet template that calculates costs and expected net returns for field or high tunnel production systems. The economic models provide a framework for current or potential producers to build a base scenario and then analyze that scenario with respect to different market prices or changes to production and management systems for seven years. The tool can be used to perform breakeven, sensitivity and risk analyses. Expected profitability can be calculated using the producer’s own system and expected selling prices.
