Machinery costs were based on current purchase prices and rates of annual use considered typical by the producer committee. 1Extension Economist, Grant-Adams Area Extension Agent and Benton-Franklin Area Extension Agent, respectively, Cooperative Extension, Washington State University.   Yet, agriculture still is very much at the heart of what makes Washington what it is. Our soil’s ability to grow so many types of crops makes it one of this nation’s most important farming states.

    machinery investment of $ or less. The rest of the analysis shows the effects of machinery investment when the farms are grouped into deciles of profitability rankings. Each decile contains 10 percent of the farms for a region. Figure 5 shows the average machinery investment per acre for each region for each decile. Figures 6, 7, and 8 use.   Farmers and those who work in the agricultural community in our state are also the stewards of public lands and of public resources.
