Fixed Cost: A fixed cost is a cost that does not change with an increase or decrease in the amount of goods or services produced or sold. Fixed costs are Author: Will Kenton. The most common medium weights are to oz/sq yd and are best for season extension for such crops as melons, cucumbers, squash, lettuces, peas, carrots, radishes, potatoes, sweet corn, strawberries, and cut flowers. With covers under oz there is minimal heat retention at night; and over oz, there is a significant reduction in.
The successful-efforts and full-cost accounting methods differ in how they treat operating expenses related to the crude oil and natural gas : James Vitalone. The Diffusion of Innovations theory was the leading theory in agricultural extension post World War II until the s. It is still used today in agricultural extension, particularly when extension is concerned with an adoption of a particular technology (i.e. technology transfer approach to extension).

This can be demonstrated using examples from developed and developing dairy industries as follows: sEconomic values: differences in the cost of labour relative to other farm costs influence the investment made by farmers on labour-saving devices, such as farm.

The relative influence of bulletins compared to other teaching methods was substantially greater in the later study areas than in the earlier study areas.
Bulletins influenced the adoption of percent of home economics practices compared to per- cent of agricultural practices (fig, 3). Individual methods of extension Group methods of extension Types of group extension methods In the previous chapter, the mass communication methods that the extension agent can employ in his work with farmers were reviewed.
In this chapter, two other extension methods that the agent can employ will be examined. In agricultural-dependent economies, extension programmes have been the main conduit for disseminating information on farm technologies, support rural adult learning and assist farmers in developing their farm technical and managerial skills.
It is expected that extension programmes will help increase farm productivity, farm revenue, reduce poverty and minimize food by: 2. Goals for farm and family Good farm management requires clear give a focus for making decisions. Some important goals are food security, profit maximization, risk reduction and providing education for and other goals influence planning and decision-making on the farm.
Economics in farm managementFile Size: KB. Agricultural extension is an important tool for rural development, especially in less industrialized counties - extension workers play a vital role in educating farmers to produce better crops and more productive animals at lower cost.
The new edition continues to present basic principles which can Reviews: 1. The extension method should be cost effective. Using materials which have been borrowed or re-used is a good way to increase cost-effectiveness. The Seasonal Extension Monitoring System measures cost-effectiveness, by taking the total cost of an event, and dividing it by File Size: KB.
Information on the direct costs and cost-effectiveness of agricultural extension services across Africa is sparse, in part because this is not often evaluated. In the case of Malawi in the early ’s, direct agent-to-farmer extension services cost US$21 per contact and US$4 to US$5 per participant for a one-day training course.

Strategic planning involves the development of long-term strategies to increase the profitability and competitiveness of your farm business.
This may involve developing new enterprises for your farm such as organic production, on-farm processing, direct marketing of your products to consumers, or the efficient production of traditional farm.
Measuring Human Resource costs (HR costs, also called Human Resource costing), is a key component of HR accounting. In this article, we’ll explain what Human Resource costing is, why you should measure costs, how to do it and why just measuring Human Resource costs is not enough.
Unit Cost Method of Estimation If the design technology for a facility has been specified, the project can be decomposed into elements at various levels of detail for the purpose of cost estimation.
The unit cost for each element in the bill of quantities must be assessed in order to compute the total construction cost. Cost behavior analysis refers to management’s attempt to understand how operating costs change in relation to a change in an organization’s level of activity.
These costs may include direct materials, direct labor, and overhead costs that are incurred from developing a product.
Farm Practices & Management ERS evaluates the influence of rising energy costs and crop prices on fertilizer prices, nutrient supply, and consumption. ERS research also examines factors influencing volatile fertilizer markets and farmers' strategies to manage nutrient use under price uncertainty.
Changing relative prices of inputs. Farm management, making and implementing of the decisions involved in organizing and operating a farm for maximum production and profit.
Farm management draws on agricultural economics for information on prices, markets, agricultural policy, and economic institutions such as leasing and credit.
It also draws on plant and animal sciences for information on soils, seed, and fertilizer, on. Factors influencing agricultural extension officers’ knowledge on the fact that the knowledge of extension officers will influence their attitude and the kind of element of the organic farming method is the efficient use of on-farm and local resources like farmyard manure, indirect crop protection and local.

Age Cited by:. Table 1 presents a generalized profile of the benefits and costs associated with conservation agriculture at the farm, regional/national and global scales.
This perspective effectively reveals the divergence between the social desirability of conservation agriculture and its potential attractiveness to individual farmers; while many of the incremental costs associated with adopting Cited by: Cost analysis techniques are used to break down a contractor’s cost or pricing data so as to verify and evaluate each component.
Some of the cost elements examined for necessity and reasonableness are materials costs, labor costs, equipment and overhead. These costs can be compared with actual costs.Cost accounting is a valuable tool you use to reduce and eliminate costs in a business.
You also use cost accounting to determine a price for your product or service that will allow you to earn a reasonable profit.
