Why you need How to Farm for Profit

  • Explains "enterprise (profit center) analysis," a fundamental method of business analysis
    based on historical financial and operational data, as the first step toward solid understanding
    and control of a farming operation. Enterprise analysis has only recently been applied to
    agriculture, with great success.

  • Shows how information obtained from enterprise analysis can be used to determine the
    exact break-even cost of each product produced on a farm, identify and address specific
    problems of an agricultural production operation, and design a successful business forecast,
    marketing plan, and accounting system.

  • Emphasizes profitability as a management objective.

  • Supports "the actual analysis of the reader's business," with specific analysis methodology
    for various types of farming operations.
