Besides the variable costs mentioned above there are fixed costs such as land and labor wages per acre. Although production costs will vary from farm to farm due to differences in soils, quantity of inputs used and weather, in both the short and the long run there will be costs and much profit to be made if the business and opportunity is handled correctly.
