Ontario Agriculture

The network for agriculture in Ontario, Canada

I spent some time thinking about what I want to accomplish, change in 2013....

I have a couple of personal things I would like to achieve....exercise more regularly, improve my fitness...

 

On the work side, I have been thinking about farming and what objectives we should be considering that are actionable and measureable.

 

I have been thinking that everything we do should be focussed on driving productivity if you are in production commodity agriculture.  Do more with less resources - lower cost of production....increased profits.

 

Easy to say but very difficult to do.

 

What business objectives are you thinking about in 2013?
