Harvesting a Profit

Harvesting a Profit is a “Profitability Guide” available through Farm Credit East. The guide is targeted to students and/or farmers beginning a career in production agriculture with minimal exposure to financial analysis, farm management, marketing and economics.

Harvesting a Profit explains how to measure profitability in agriculture:

  • Can you tell a friend what managerial accounting is?
  • Have you ever wondered how you can make money on paper and have no money in your checkbook?
  • Is adding more productive units the only way to improve profitability?

If you are unsure about the answers to any of these questions, then Harvesting a Profit is for you!

Harvesting a Profit emphasizes the positive side of agriculture. Although geared toward production, any business can use it in their planning and control.
