|Better Farming Series 10 - The Farm Business Survey (FAO - INADES, 1976, 38 p.)|
|Part 2 - The farm business survey|
The study programme for the second- year course is called: the farm business and its animal and vegetable production. We shall deal more particularly with the farm business in this first booklet of the second- year course and in the last booklet of the course. In the other booklets we shall deal with the animal and vegetable production of a farm. In this first booklet, we ask you to make a farm business survey.
What does this mean - "make a survey"?
Making a survey of a farm business means taking stock of a farm
and stating what are its means of production.

· How many fields are farmed?
What is the area of these fields?
What crops are grown on them?
· What animals belong to the farmer?
How many are there?
Do some animals work in the fields?
· What tools are used?
· What buildings are there?
