In a previous post, we discussed ways to maximize and increase your yield in your farming practices. We still stand by everything that we said, but this article is devoted to building off of the last post. Today, we would like to discuss increasing your tillable and plantable area on your land parcel. Read on to find out the benefits of doing this.
One of the reasons that you should think about increasing the available area on your land is to plant more crops. This obviously will increase your yield every year. One of the things that you do need to consider before you do it is if you can handle the extra work. Increasing your planting space can result in a lot more hours of labor to till, plant, and harvest crops. However, having that extra yield can be crucial in gaining stature and reputation as far as classification as farm size grows. Additionally, having a higher yield can make you eligible for different tax breaks and land grants, which can be very helpful to your farm in the long run. It is definitely something to consider.
If you do play your cards right when you decide to up your available area on your property, you can stand to gain a lot more money. This is simply because your yield is higher. Again, you do need to take some things into consideration. There is a size of farm that can be profitable, and there are also farm sizes that are not as profitable as others. Before deciding to increase your available planting area, you should see what category your farm falls under in order to determine your next move.
Room to branch out
Another advantage is not necessarily getting more crops, but allowing yourself to find out different kinds of crops. For example, you may be planting mainly corn but might want to try out soybeans. Increasing your planting space can allow you to have that room for experimentation. Again, you need to see if the crops you want to plant can grow where you are.
Clearing your land
If you have decided to go ahead with increasing the amount of available land on your property, then you should definitely think about tree removal. You will need to find an affordable tree care company to clear your land for you. This may include several different kinds of removal, so you may need to hire this company for brush pile clearing. Finally, if you decide to plant some kind of fruit trees, you will need your fruit arbor pruned by certified arborists.
You could certainly benefit from more land with which you can work! Look into it!
