Finance is all about the systems, institutions and
instruments involved in the transfer of funds between
individuals, businesses and governments. This includes
vital, short-run decisions such as cash management and

as well as long-term decisions such as investment in plant
and equipment, fund-raising, and mergers and takeovers,
which determine the wealth of stakeholders.
Your studies in finance can lead to career opportunities
and also provide useful personal money management

John Deereis the world‟s leading manufacturer of farm equipment. In the fall of 2010, the company launched a giveaways campaign, in which the prize was one of its tractors customized by a famous automobile designer.
“In a departure from traditional equipment promotions, John Deere has launched its unique Big Buck customized 4020 tractor giveaway, as well as significant purchase incentives on utility tractors for customers for the end of 2009 and into 2010,” read the press releaseannouncing the campaign.
The task force has launched a series of consultations with representatives of the farm
and energy sectors, as well as leading environmental organizations, that aims to reach
final decisions on the type of biofuels, as well as government funding, by year-end,
At present, fuel tax exonerations on the existing biofuels production cost the government
[Euros] 180 million ($221 million) annually, while EU farm subsidies are estimated at
nearly double this amount.
When it is necessary to add refrigerant to a system after a loss it indicates
that there is a leak in the system. The leak must be located, repaired and the
system leak tested. If the leak is found to be on the low side of the system the
repair can be made after the system has been ‘pumped down’ to a balance in
pressure. Do not draw in any air which contains moisture, especially where
hygroscopic ester oils are concerned, (for example R134a). Some oils are not
affected and accept the ingress of air and moisture, recovering after a vacuum
is drawn with a recovery unit....
Capital ownership costs for milk production (economic depreciation and interest) are computed
using the capital recovery approach. Capital recovery is an estimate of the cost of replacing the
capital investment for cattle housing, milking facilities, feed storage structures, manure handling
and storage structures, feed handling equipment, tractors, trucks, and purchased dairy herd
replacements used up in the annual production process, plus interest that the remaining capital
could have earned in an alternative use.
The collection of seed from planted trees in a Seed Orchard (SO) Seed Production Area (SPA) generally requires access to seed-bearing branches at heights. High lift machinery or climbing methods can be used to obtain required working heights. High lift machinery is the more efficient option, reducing the risks associated with climbing and chainsaw operation. In cases where high lift machinery is not available or too expensive, climbing is a viable option.
This guide is about the farm as a commercial enterprise operating in a market economy. Generally
the word farm has a wider meaning namely land, livestock and crops, farm buildings and a house;
and a place where people live and work and where financial-economic aspects are not the only ones
which are important for the people who live on the farm.
The objectives of the project are to expand plant quarantine activities in Vietnam through provision of facilities and equipment, and training to staff to standards required for participation in international trade. The project will also develop training materials to provide ongoing training and reference ensuring self-sufficiency. On completion of the project, staff will be competent in the current methods used in disinfestation research, familiar with equipment and technology and able to prepare submissions for international quarantine authorities.
The project is designed to complement an ACIAR project on Fruit Flies in Vietnam. Whereas the ACIAR project will investigate the pest fruit fly species, the crops they attack and levels of damage inflicted, this proposed project under CARD is designed to equip laboratories and staff at three centres under MARD, provide an experimental foundation for production of protein for fruit fly control and animal food and instruct farmers in fruit fly pest management.
Consideration should be given to the question of animal welfare before installing new equipment
or adopting new husbandry systems. In general, the greater the restriction imposed on an animal
and the greater the complexity of the system or the degree of control that is exercised over
temperature, air flow, or food supply, the less the animal is able to use its instinctive behaviour to
modify the effect of unfavourable conditions and the greater the chance of suffering if mechanical
or electrical failure occurs.
A feather or one speck of fecal matter can carry billions of infectious germs. Avoid unnecessary human
traffic, and prevent contact with unsanitary crates, equipment, or vehicles. Always wear clean clothes
and footwear each time you return to your poultry production area. Allow visitors only after they have
put on properly sanitized footwear, clothing, and hats. Insist that all poultry buyers bring only clean,
disinfected crates. equipment, and vehicles into your farm with no visible fecal material or feathers.
Eastern Europe has undergone far-reaching transition from the former Soviet system of collective and
state farms to new agrarian structures. This has unfolded in many ways, depending on countries’ factor
endowment, institutional structure, the share of agriculture in the overall labor force, infrastructure, and
the way the reforms were implemented. In areas of low population density where collectives were divided
into small plots allocated to members, the plots were quickly rented back by companies with access to
finance and machinery.
This standard covers the design, construction, and location of liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) installations at marine and pipeline terminals, natural gas processing plants, refineries, petrochemical plants, or tank farms. This standard covers storage vessels, loading and unloading systems, piping, or and related equipment.
A farm is like a machine, fuelled by various resources, such as pasture, manpower, soil, water, equipment, crop plants and animals. As the resources become depleted or are used improperly, the profitability of the ‘machine’

Farm mechanization helps in effective utilization of inputs to increase the
productivity of land and labour. Besides it helps in reducing the drudgery in farm
operations. The early agricultural mechanization in India was greatly influenced
by the technological development in England. Irrigation pumps, tillage equipment,
chaff cutters, tractors and threshers were gradually introduced for farm
It is said that farms having land to grow crops and forage (PK-3 and PK-10R) were relatively most
competitive. The PK-10R farm is said to be most viable farm size, and has the potential of challenging
competitors in export markets6. Such farms make effective use of technological advances in breeding
practices, e.g., artificial insemination, to improve their herd quality. Some of them have also installed their
own pasteurization or processing equipment. However, there are only 23% of farmers who fall in the
PK-10R category, whereas 70% of the farmers have less than four animals.
A detailed account of the field history, farm
maps, crop rotations, and a comprehensive plan
of operation for following organic protocols
need to be incorporated into the plan. All fields,
greenhouses, storage areas, warehouses, and
processing facilities used in organic production
must be discussed in the OSP. Growers with split
operations (organic and conventional production
on the same farm) need to include information on
how they plan to prevent commingling of the two
