Labor Benchmarks

As the farm income belt tightens, we want to be as efficient as possible.  One way to measure efficiency is to see how much gross income a unit of labor brings in.  Here's how the University of Illinois figured it out.


I'm of the old school and this kind of calculation seems awkward to me, but I have no doubt that modern operators will increasingly benchmark everything.  Whether everything should be benchmarked or is benchmarked correctly may be an important question.
