The Black Walnut Financial Model is an Excel template that assists growers with planting and harvesting questions. The template helps growers make informed decisions about the spacing of three, harvests of nuts, and whether to plant improved or unimproved trees.
The Black Walnut Financial Model asks questions about the grower’s orchard and then uses an algorithm to estimate tree diameters and nut production. These predictions can then be used by the grower to make planting decisions to maximize the profitability of their orchard and decrease risk. The model that the template employs covers a 100-year time period, making long-term planning simple.
