Three different discount rates (10, 8 and 5%) were used to get the NPV and CBR for peach and cherry. The NPV for peach were found to be positive (32.0, 131.7 and 340.5 $/da). Also the NPV for cherry were found to be positive (3573.1, 4453.4 and 6327.5 $/da). In addition to that, the CBR for peach were bigger than 1 (1.01, 1.03 and 1.07) and the CBR for cherry were bigger than 1 (1.89, 1.94 and 2.03). The IRR for peach was 10.78% and 47.13 for cherry.
