How much fuel are you using?
With commodity prices under pressure evaluating your establishment costs is one way of reducing your expenditure. Fuel, for example, has a high price over which we have no control. It is usually accounted for as a fixed cost which we believe should be variable, and can make a significant difference to the cost of establishment.
Shown is an example of the fuel usage of a 15m straw harrow and a T6c 6m Hybrid seeding oats last spring.
