Benchmarking harvest group practices in the Burdekin : SRDC final report CSR033
MetadataShow full item record
This project was initiated due to a lack of information available to harvesting groups as to whether their operation was economically comparable to other harvesting groups in the Burdekin and if their current practices were economically sustainable. To do this, the project was designed to create a benchmarking system to enable harvest groups to compare harvester performance by: Establishing a low cost, reliable harvester reporting system which captures field conditions Generate reports showing harvester performance Enable harvest groups to compare different operating practices due to farming systems and model the cost associated to those practices Determine the impacts of different group configurations on profitability.
