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 field (14 feet by 40 feet, the size of one high tunnel for comparison). The costs are representative, but should be adjusted where necessary for individual situations. The net income resulting from stems sold at a price of $1.20 per high-quality stem (100% sold) and $0.75 per low quality stem (40% sold) is $116.41 ($0.21 per sq. ft) for the first harvest period, $154.32 for the second harvest period ($0.28 per sq. ft), and $270.74 ($0.48 per sq. ft) totaled across harvest periods in one year.
