The balance point of my business and investment in agricultural machinery. AEco | M1

23 April 2020 | 9:00 am - 10:30 am

During the OnLine event, we will be talking about:

Two fundamental objectives in the administration of farms: 

  1. Guide those responsible for it in the best use of resources.
  2. Provide a fundamental analysis on the efficiency in the use of these resources.

The efficient use of resources implies the generation of positive economic results for the sugar cane grower. For this reason, this training will provide us with some of the basic tools to obtain the balance points of my productive unit in order to aim my management to obtain tonnages that will generate positive profits for my farm. In addition, we will focus on a production resource that has an important participation in field work, which is the agricultural machinery and implements on which decisions must also be made on a day-to-day basis.  

In this event we will address Module 1 (M1) of the virtual training: Economic analysis for decision making on the farm (The short title of this training is Economic analysis o AEco).

Start date and time: Apr 23, 2020 | 9:00 am. Cali, Colombia. (UTC -5)
