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.
(This chart does not include Planting Incentive and uses: $12,000/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.)
