The machinery cost of ownership survey is now open and will provide a comparison on harvesters, self-propelled sprayers, balers and seeders. Participants will receive a copy of the results and their individual cost of ownership.

The report will compare different brands, sizes and types to get a better idea of any differences in costs. Participants will gain a better understanding of how their costs compare with other growers, as well as what costs are involved in different machinery types. This will assist you in future purchases, improving efficiency and more.

The surveys require information on your machinery including:

  • Purchase and predicted sale values
  • Number of hours
  • Annual costs
  • Hectares covered
  • Other costs and figures associated with machinery

All data compiled is analysed in an anonymous form.
