Will a potential change to soil management increase profit? How do we assess whether a change we’ve already made was profitable?
One way to answer these questions is to use a ‘partial budget’, which considers:
- Additional revenue and reduced revenue
- Additional costs and reduced costs to work out the net change in profit.
A partial budget only includes items that change.
This factsheet will assist growers to assess profit from practice change on vegetable farms and a spreadsheet is available here.
