Keeping track of costs

KNOWING the costs involved in arable production is important. A 60-page booklet, produced by drill and cultivator manufacturer Vaderstad, explains in some detail just what costs what in terms of different cultivation systems, and provides some pointers to how costs can be reduced. A series of case studies at the back of the book puts such arguments in to practice. Available free of charge, copies of Introduction to Arable Costings can be obtained on 01909-561234. &#42
