Using this budget, farmers can estimate the costs and returns for raising tomatoes in a high tunnel. Table 1 presents estimates for Missouri based on price forecasts in March 2024. Production is assumed in 2,000 square feet high tunnel system with 226 plants yielding 11 pounds per plant. Capital investments and a sensitivity analysis are summarized in Tables 2 and 3. Use the “Your estimate” column to plan your high tunnel tomato operation’s costs and returns.
