AgMargins™ is a web-based gross margin calculator and reporting tool for broadacre and horticultural crops across Queensland. This will enable the production of readily updated crop gross margin information that can be used by landholders to assess production costs and farm management decisions.
AgMargins™ can be used to generate agricultural gross margins. A gross margin is the difference between the gross income and variable costs of producing a commodity. This will assist farmers in making short-term decisions to increase profitability. Variable costs include those associated with crop operations, harvesting and marketing. Gross margins are quoted on a per hectare basis, and also per ML for irrigated crops.
