BUSINESS PLANS

In order to construct a full agricultural business plan the understanding of the natural resource information as described above is paramount. An excellent farm plan can only be done   if soil survey information, water survey and current plant and soil analysis results are available and interpreted correctly. The above information forms the basis of all future and current decisions and corrective actions for enterprise production.

The analysis of strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats of the business always form part of a business plan. Having decided on an enterprise one can now commence financial planning in the form of production and capital budgets.  The enterprises which do not meet certain financial criteria are substituted with ones that meet the return of investment criteria based on scientific suitability. Costs of production, capital budgets, operating budgets and capital replacement budgets are calculated to estimate the viability of a particular enterprise. It this instance it is the belief that the correct enterprises that fits best with the suitability of the land is chosen. The financial outcomes are then analyzed according to the demand of such products and marketability of the product.

The contents of my  business plans are basically as follows.

BESIGHEIDS
PLANNE

Om 'n volledige landbou besigheids plan saamtestel, is informasie, soos in die vorige afdeling beskryf, noodsaaklik.  Geen goeie plaas beplanning kan gedoen word, sonder 'n grondopname, wateropname, grond en plant ontledings resultate en korrekte interpretasie  nie. Die informasie  vorm die basis van alle toekomstige en huidige landbou besluite en korektiewe aksie vir produksie.

Die ontleding van sterktes, swakhede, geleenthede en bedreigings van die besighede vorm altyd 'n deel van die besigheids plan uit. Sodra op die regte besigheid vir die plaas besluit is, is dit nou moontlik om die finansiŽle beplanning te handhaaf..  Die besigheid wat nie ooreenkom met die finansiŽle doeltreffendheid moet gelos word en verplaas word deur een wat doeltreffend en lewensvatbaar is. Faktore soos koste van produksie, kapitale begroting.operateur begrotings, sowel as kapitale vervangings begrotings moet opgestel word.om die lewens vatbaarheid van die plaasbesigheid te bepaal. Die finansiŽle uitkoms word ontleed en die aanvraag vir die produk bepaal.
