Regardless of whether you are managing a small farming project or a large one, building the skills to manage a value-added project is an important goal. Improving management skills is a never-ending process. Most managers feel that they are successful, since they ended up in the position, yet may have little or no training or experience.
Constant evolution of both production and forecasting technology, and ever-changing market trends impact every farm business or agriculture-related project. In the past, agricultural businesses focused on commodities such as corn, cassava , poultry and cattle which were mostly used in the food industry. Production of those units continually focused on similarity and guaranteed supply. Once produced, the product was passed on to some other business who specialized in selling it. The best way was often the easiest and simplest path, not necessarily the one that was the most efficient or yield farm management, making and implementing of the decisions involved in organizing and operating a farm for maximum production and profit. Farm management draws on agricultural economics for information on prices, markets, agricultural policy, and economic institutions such as leasing and credit. It also draws on plant and animal sciences for information on soils, seed, and fertilizer, on control of weeds, insects, and disease, and on rations and breeding; on agricultural engineering for information on farm buildings, machinery, irrigation, crop drying, drainage, and erosion control systems; and on psychology and sociology for information on human behavior. In making his decisions, a farm manager thus integrates information from the biological, physical, and social sciences.
We at Greenroot Ltd believe in agricultural products having very specific high-value attributes. High-levels of quality control, trait-specific testing and contracting is the norm. Farms are “vertically integrated,” for example large-scale aquaculture or poultry operations with integrated fertilizer- or feed-production operations. Operations that may sell outside the primary operation to surrounding producers. Today, many farms receive income from a myriad of different non-agricultural on-farm business.
