Return on Investment from renovation should be accelerated with Rutgers new varieties due to:
- More rapid establishment and vigorous stolon growth
- Increased cash flow from higher yields
For example, this chart shows that the accumulative cash flow from a bed renovated with Crimson Queen™ exceeds that of a non-renovated bed by year 4, more than making up for the cost of renovation.
(Chart does not include Planting Incentive and uses: $12,000/A renovation cost; $40/barrel price; and Crimson Queen earnings estimated from yield of 100 sq.ft. research plot in Chatsworth, NJ, years 6-12 yield projected from mean of years 4-5.)
