LOBOS A, Germán  y  MUNOZ I, Tristán. Profitability and Economic Efficiency Indicators of cv. Gala Apple Production in Maule Region, Chile. Agric. Téc. [online]. 2005, vol.65, n.4, pp.421-436. ISSN 0365-2807.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0365-28072005000400008.

Profitability and economic efficiency indicators of apple (Malus domestica L.) cv. Gala production of a farm located in the Linares area (35º51’ S lat, 71º35’ W long), Maule Region, Chile, were estimated. Technical parameters of the orchard were obtained from historical farm records for different premises from the 1994-1995 to 2003-2004 agricultural seasons. For the valuation of the investment in the orchard and production costs, the prices for the 2003-2004 season were used. From the capital-asset-pricing model (CAPM), the weighted average cost of capital (WACC) was calculated, which was estimated at 8.71% annually. The profitability indicators calculated were net present value (VAN), internal rate of return (TIR), net present value index (IVAN) and cost benefit ratio (RBC), while the economic efficiency indicators were total mean production cost (CMET), unit margin (MU) and return on equity (RSC). The analysis was based upon one hectare. For the standard situation the results obtained were: 8,454 dollars per hectare VAN, 12.1% TIR, 0.43 IVAN, 1.51 RBC. The minimum CMET were estimated at 0.08 dollars per kilogram, the maximum MU at 0.14 dollars per kilogram and RSC up to 23.6%. The main conclusion, from an economic point of view, suggests that this activity is profitable for producers of cv. Gala apples.

Palabras clave : discount rate; net present value; internal rate return; return on equity.
