A set of crop alternatives ranging from traditional, low risk to less common and/or high risk crops is ranked according to their impact on overall risk using two measures. These two measures would aid cropping decisions by providing (1) a priori guidance on overall risk impact, and (2) a means to reduce the need for complex E‐V frontier estimation. Results suggest the number of crops that may depend on the riskiness of crop alternatives form which a producer chooses. Some reductions in necessary calculations for E‐V analysis are therefore suggested.
