Do you know the contribution margins of your field crops?
· “Which crop is more profitable for me? Winter wheat or grain maize?”
· “Was the late fertilisation of the winter wheat worthwhile?”
· “How high are my production costs for one hectare of potatoes?”
To answer these questions, there is no way around the contribution margin. However, doing calculations by hand with a pen and paper or even in Excel is very time-consuming.
Automatically calculate contribution margins with 365FarmNet.
Make the right decisions in the future.
The contribution margin not only helps you review the completed harvest, but more importantly, helps you plan your farming operation.
“Better to plant winter wheat or grain maize?” – Naturally, balanced crop rotation is essential for maintaining soil fertility. Nevertheless, there is still a certain amount of leeway when it comes to optimising crop rotation not just for the soil, but for your wallet as well.
“Are the last 20 kg N of rapeseed worth it?” – As you know, maximum yields do not necessarily mean maximum profits. Use your resources efficiently with regard to the new Fertiliser Ordinance. How about a comparison of the production intensity? With the contribution margin accounting in our portal, you can find out straight away which is more worthwhile!
“Are all of the areas I lease profitable?” – In recent years, lease prices have risen non-stop. Can you say with certainty that you are achieving a profit from all areas?
