  This program calculates the cash costs and financial return to resources on a per tree, per acre
  and per farm basis. The final result is a financial RETURN TO LAND used in Kona avocado production.
  If the actual land charge were subtracted from this return to land, the result would be "economic profit."
  All results are dependent upon specific assumptions and data entered by the user into the bordered cell .
  Results are only as accurate as the data provided by the grower(s). Mention of any specific product or
  practice should not be misconstrued to imply University of Hawaii endorsement of such product or practice.
