iFEAT (iFARM Economic Analysis Tool) is a spreadsheet based tool developed to allow the user to assess current and potential management options for economic sustainability. The user can evaluate lease arrangements, input costs, government programs, and insurance options to arrive at the best economic combination of these variables.

iFEAT is a user-friendly spreadsheet tool for helping no-till farmers—who often have higher fertilizer costs—quickly assess the economic benefits of various leasing and management options. The spreadsheet provides information on costs and net returns for different management alternatives, enabling them to assess the potential economic outcomes of management changes.
