Updated Cost of Production Modelling

After countless hours of work by the editors and contributors and a review process at the AGM and grower committee, the tender fruit board is pleased to provide the 2023 Tender Fruit Cost of Production (COP) to its members and stakeholders.

OMAFRA will also be updating their resources at the following link   to provide opportunity for growers to input their own costs against the 2023 COP model.

Many thanks to Larissa Osborne, the team at OMAFRA and the growers who participated in this project.  It is a goal to increase the frequency of these updates (indexing) considering many of the major production costs change significantly on an annual basis.


The Niagara Irrigation Strategic Plan was completed in late 2017 with funding and support from Growing Forward 2 (GF2), a federal-provincial-territorial initiative, Niagara Peninsula Fruit and Vegetable Growers' Association and Grape and Tender Fruit Growers of Ontario.  It outlines the future priorities and strategic direction towards a Niagara region irrigation system.
