For example, if you have $1m of machinery and $800k of it is solely cropping related, then apportion the depreciation to the cropping enterprise...

Introduction The 2010 harvest will remain in the mind of many farmers as they reflect on a year that could have been even better if grain yields and quality had been maintained... The formula for calculating a machinery work rate is: Work rate in Ha / Hr = (Speed (km/hr) x width (m)) x efficiency % 10 If harvesting a crop at 5 km / hr and using an 14m harvester and operating at 80% efficiency, this farmer should be able to harvest a crop at 5.6 ha / hr... The formula for calculating field efficiency is: Field efficiency % = Time spend operating the machine x 100 Total time spent in the paddock Total time spent in a paddock generally includes emptying the grain, travel, fixing breakdowns, turning, overlapping and undertaking maintenance...

For southern Queensland grower John 'Cowboy' Cameron the need to minimise the initial, high cost of applying phosphorus deep in the soil has led him to adjust a planter he built in the farm workshop for deep-banding fertiliser... The homemade implement allows John to switch from seeding to deep fertiliser applications in just 10 minutes on his 1400-hectare property at Bongeen, about 50 kilometres west of Toowoomba... John says data from the first year of trials has highlighted a significant yield response to subsoil phosphorus applications in tough seasonal conditions...

Benefits should be quantified and outweigh the additional cost... Ms Alexander works through an example of what it costs to own a piece of machinery, such as a new header, that retails for $750,000, and the impact of scale and alternative investment options... Investors need to consider more than just the capital costs when it comes to machinery: seasons, risk of delays and the associated penalties, and the financial impact of each option on the business must be considered...

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)...

Mr McInerney said that in the past, many growers considered pulse crops difficult to grow due to limited herbicide options for weed control, disease susceptibility, volatile and limited markets, and low gross margins... "Today's pulses have better disease resistance and much improved weed control options, and market volatility is arguably no worse than wheat or canola prices, which now halve and double in the space of a couple of seasons," Mr McInerney said... He said the value of a pulse crop needed to be considered in the context of the whole rotation and across an entire property...

All too often farmers make machinery decisions because they can, not because they should... The formula for calculating a machinery work rate is: Work rate in Ha / Hr = (Speed (km/hr) x width (m)) x efficiency % 10 If sowing a crop at 8 km / hr and using an 18.33m air seeder and operating at 80% efficiency, this farmer should be able to sow the crop at 11.73 ha / hr... The formula for calculating field efficiency is: Field efficiency % = Time spend operating the machine x 100 Total time spent in the paddock Total time spent in a paddock generally includes filling time, travel, fixing breakdowns, turning, overlapping and undertaking maintenance...
