Influences on costs and profit Profit is driven by income and costs the impact on income should be considered when changing costs. '.. If the farmer you are working with is under stress of some sort, either financially or personally, they may ignore advice given and become more conservative in their approach to change... , most farmers have not received any formal training in research skills or decision analysis and are ill equipped to collect an exhaustive supply of information on a subject for analysis...

The affable and unassuming nature of Leo Delahunty belies the steely farm business acumen and focus that the family farming operation, Templemore Partners, has applied over the past 40 years.. The Delahuntys ( Table 1 ) have segmented five key drivers for farm business success: cost management; productivity; external advice and relationships; structures and opportunities to improve people in the business; and understanding the risk profile of your business... Capital expenditure is analysed closely...

The aim of the project was to investigate the use of compost as a partial substitute for synthetic phosphorus (P) fertilisers in Vietnam... Results of the project indicated that the use of compost as a substitute for synthetic P fertiliser is a viable solution to the predicted increases in demand and cost of mined P fertiliser... While glasshouse results showed that synthetic fertilisers are able to be substituted with compost, a nutritionally balanced field trial which uses more appropriate sampling times, as well as a collection of plant tissue samples, is proposed as an area for further research...

" Over the Fence North: Legume solution to rising fertiliser costs 14 November 2013 LEGUMES offer a partial solution to the issues of increasing fertiliser costs and nutrient deficiency plaguing many farm businesses... University of Queensland principal research fellow Mike Bell said many farmers in the north were not getting their nutrient inputs right, and solving the problem could mean rethinking their entire cropping systems... Technology to reduce spray drift GCTV: Drift Reducing Technology..

Silage stacks cut from forage sorghum grown on 'Strathmore' and used for finishing prime cattle... Increased local grain productivity is seen as the key to also lifting beef production.. As northern agriculture expands as a whole, including feedlots and the trend towards more supplementary feeding, he expects local demand for grain sorghum to keep rising - in addition to export options...

Failure to meet obligations outlined in a grain contract can be costly to a business, so it is important to have systems in place and manage contracts ... The averages should not be seen as reflecting the overall average price achieved for APW by pool operators... The three key considerations when assessing the forecasting accuracy of a given pool operator is the: n difference between the FPR and the average EPR published during the decision period (i.e. how much less/more did growers receive from what they were expecting)...

Higher prices for both fertiliser and grain mean that fertiliser needs to be better targeted and used more efficiently because of the increased risks of losses both at the over- and under-fertilising ends of the spectrum... The key requirements for making better fertiliser recommendations are realistic estimates of potential yield (A), knowledge of the maximum yield response to fertiliser input for a give nutrient status of the soil (B) and estimates of nutrient use efficiency or the curvature of the response curve (C)... Yield response of ryegrass to applied N is considered to be linear between applications of 0 3 00 kg N ha -1(Whitehead 1995), it was appropriate to consider the linear response to N applied in the biosolids and urea...

Fertiliser is not widely used in north-west New South Wales... To meet the overall objective of the project "to match fertiliser more closely to crop needs", work was extended to evaluate whether electromagnetic induction (EMI) can be used as a rapid, cost-effective method for quantifying the spatial distribution of PAW and improve the tactical application of nutrients... The results from the work suggest value in continuing the development of EMI for estimating the spatial distribution of PAW for better nutrient budgeting and variable rate applications of nutrients...
