This enterprise budget contains costs (preplant and site preparation, establishment and maintenance, and harvest and processing) and returns for the production and sale of snapdragon cut flowers that were grown in a high tunnel (14 feet by 40 feet). The costs are representative, but should be adjusted where necessary for individual situations. Tunnel use, site selection, variety, pest management, and other practices will affect costs of the cut-flower operation. The net income resulting from stems harvested from a 14’ x 40’ high tunnel and sold at a price of $1.20 per high-quality stem (100% sold) and $0.75 per low quality stem (40% sold) is $534.27 ($0.95 per sq. ft) for the first harvest period, $906.58 for the second harvest period ($1.62 per sq. ft), and $1,440.85 ($2.57 per sq. ft) totaled across harvest periods in one year.
