Description: An annual maple syrup production cost series was developed for the period 1972 to 1984. Comparisons were made between plastic tubing and metal bucket technology and wood- and oil-fired evaporation. The effects of sap- sugar content and size of operation were examined together with the relationships among major cost items. The information will be useful to maple syrup producers and lenders needing financial analyses, equipment developers and manufacturers, and public policy analysts and planners.
Keywords: cost analysis; maple sugar production
