How much to charge?

I had some washes in my CRP that needed fixed. I took the field cultivator and ran over all of them crossways 2 times. Then the big one got some attention from the 1850 and Waldon blade. Before I could seed it, we had a month of rain, so I had to use the blade to push dirt back up the hill on the worst ones and just disked the rest. I rented a drill from SCS and they recommended setting it at 1/2 the rate and going over it 2 times for uniform coverage. FSA will cost share seed,prep and planting. I have about 5 hours with the field cultivator and disk 2 1/2 hours with the blade and 6 1/2 hours seeding. What is a reasonable rate to charge myself for use of equipment for this? SCS guessed it at 3 acres all added together. The seed cost $840 plus 5 bags of oats and 1 bag of cocao hull mulch to mix with the seed. Any ideas for an amount to turn in for my time and machinery? Thanks, Chris

i'm surprised that FSA doesn't have a set rate.
