I have collected data on how much litre per acre each of the crops produce in the base game. This test was done with 165% yield for all of them.
For the sell prices, I have found some data in the game files and I think it represent the average price for the sell points. You can use this information to make sure you always sell at a good price.

At the end, the actual effort, time required, capital investment needed for the special equiment all play an important role that must be considered. And I think that it is well balanced overall. The one exception is with the Coton, which I find is oddly low compared to other crops. One could argue it is probably the easiest crop in the game, but the return is much lower than other "simple" crops such as Canola or Soybean.
Do take the time to collect the straw from your Wheat, Oat and Barley fields, you can be missing out on about 50% of profit is you don't collect and sell it!
To sell Silage at the Biogas Plant, you must be buy the land first. It can take up to 50,000 Litre of Silage at once, and process it continually. You don't get the money right away, it will pay you at midnight. The price seems to be fixed at $ 500 per litre and the price seems unaffected by selling at this location.
Because sell prices at the various sell locations will drop after you sell your crops, it's preferable to farm various crops, and only sell them when prices are high or during a high demand. A large farm with a single crop type wouldn't be as profitable because sell prices would be lower often.
