10 Best Cash Crops with the Highest Profit per Acre

Come with us to the world of best cash crops with the highest profit per acre. Insider Monkey has recently published an interesting article about this topic. As for me, I have a little farm with huge shepherd dogs, hunter dogs, cats, chickens, ducklings, a mini cow and some rabbits. I sell vegetables, fruit, eggs, milk, cheese and some meat sometimes. I do farming beacuse I want to know what I eat. As the saying tells us: you are what you eat. I firmly believe it’s worth investing a little farm, since people in the city have realized products coming from farms directly are much better and healthier. I am planning to grow mushrooms either. Not only because I love cooking and  eating them, but yes, they are very profitable. You can buy pre-grown mushroom sacks and just you put them into the cellar, and violiá! you can harvest! Of course not every mushroom is so easy to grow, but what is true, it is worth considering it.

Now without a further ado let’s see what Insider Monkey has investigated for us. We have picked three of the best cash crops with the highest profit per acre.

The first one is Rapeseed/canola. Often mistaken with one another, rapeseed and canola belong to the cabbage or mustard family. What’s the difference between canola and rapeseed? Canola was created through plant breeding in order to get rid of two undesirable components of rapeseed: glucosinolates and erucic acid. However, sometimes rapeseed is divided into two categories: industrial rapeseed and canola. Anyhow, canola is lower in saturated fats than any other vegetable oil making it a very healthy choice for cooking. According to data we found, profit is $10,75 per bushel or around $430 per acre. The second crop is Lavender.

Lavender is a truly a sweet smell of success. This fragrant Mediterranean plant requires the right climate to thrive (mild winters and sunny summers) but it is grown in various states across the US. If you add some extra efforts, you can turn beautiful lavender flowers into lavender bags, aromatherapy oil, lavender soap and many other beauty products. Yearly profit per acre is around $34,000. Let’s see what’s next on our list of best cash crops with the highest profit per acre. At last, but not least let’s see Willows. Willow one of the best cash crops with the highest profit per acre, can find its place on the market in many forms.  Willow needs significantly fewer pesticides than other crops and while it thrives in deep soil rich with water, it is also very resistant to other conditions as well.  Prices for basketry willow range from $6,50 to $10 per pound and even more for processed rods.
