Vegetable Garden Value Calculator

Plangarden

[Temporarily offline as of spring 2021] This straightforward calculator uses the inputs of produce type and planted area to determine the total pounds grown and market value of individual or multiple crops. Over 50 kinds of vegetables, fruits, and herbs are available in the drop-down menu. Calculations are based on default values for yield and price per pound, though these parameters may be changed. The user may also select grocery, farmer’s market or organic to adjust the average price per pound.
