Question: Midwestern Sod Company produces two products fescue grass and B

Midwestern Sod Company produces two products: fescue grass and Bermuda grass.

The company has 130,000 square yards of growing space available. In the past year, the company dedicated 65,000 square yards to fescue and 65,000 square yards to Bermuda grass. Annual fixed costs are $130,000, which the company allocates to products based on relative growing space.
Martha Lopez, the chief financial officer of Midwestern Sod, has suggested that in the coming year, all 130,000 square yards should be devoted to Bermuda grass. The president vetoed her suggestion, saying knows that right now home construction is booming in our area, and we can sell all the grass we can produce, irrespective of what type. But you know a lot of developers really like that fescue grass, and I’d hate to disappoint them by not offering it.”

What is the opportunity cost of the president’s decision to stick with both types ofgrass?
