Abstract: Although the MOA/SG program was widely considered to be a success, no formal analysis had been carried out to determine the farm-level profitability of the program’s improved technology packages. In September 1997 MOA/SG agreed to collaborate with the Grain Marketing Research Project (GMRP) and the Department of Agricultural Economics at Michigan State University (MSU). This paper analyzes the financial returns to the recommended technology packages and determines the major factors affecting yield response.
