1Returns were calculated by multiplying the 2008 yield by the test weight discount paid at the Southwest Grain Terminal located at Gladstone on September 9.  The price paid on this date was $9.75/bu for grain with a minimum test weight of 60 lb/bu.  Grain was discounted $.02/bu for each 0.5 lb reduction in test weight between 60 and 58 lb/bu,$.04/bu per 0.5 lb reduction between 58 and 54 lb/bu, and $0.05/bu per 0.5 lb/bu reduction between 54 and 50 lb/bu.  Returns also deduct $167.90, the sum of all listed costs from  the December 2007 Farm Management Planning Guide Projected 2008 Crop Budgets South West North Dakota for durum.
