Calculation of results per field group
|Top Previous Next|
Once entered the data as discussed above you can get two main types of processing. The application in a web environment is able to provide the user complex processing procedures carried out with Formulas used from Excel model, ASP and Microsoft ® Access ®.
Through the Scrolling menu of management of the farmsselecting the thirteenth items, that is "Result by field groups", you will enter the results of the calculation model, which processes the data entered in the previous sections.
Results are listed by type of farm's crop. By selecting one with the button you will access the results for that field group.
TIPS: If you wish to view results based by the type of crop, see Calculation of results.
The model elaborates a review of mechanical costs, resources used, those extra business and income related to the selected crop, if those are available.
The system also makes available a total budget / operating income, where are compared income and outgoing arising from the use of mechanization in the farm. This system is not intended as a true economic balance but as a comparison of cost items and revenue for immediate detection within the farm and limited to considered crop. As we seen, the system doesn't considered other important cost items of the farm, that are in some cases not immediately related to a crop analysis.
The cost items contained under the section for mechanical operation costs derive from a calculation that the procedure performs based on the costs of use times of the machines (including the cost of fuel) and the time required to perform each operation.
In the section cost for resource used are added the relative costs for the productive means utilized It may be noted that the same factor may be use several times during the cultivation of a crop. Finally, what appears below the section of extra farm cost and farming revenues derived from the sum of user input data in sections of the same name.
This analysis was also built in order to better evaluate the possible purchase of a new machinery, the replacement of an obsolete one or the purchase of one with a working capacity higher, than the use of a farm contractor.
However, as has been noted previously, the annual increase of the use of a farm machinery (tractor or equipment) will reduce the costs related to the field operation in which it is used. This may be very interesting to estimate and optimize the use of mechanical resources of the farm.
