Farmbench helps you to understand and compare your full costs of production at both enterprise and whole-farm level.

It is becoming more important than ever for farmers and growers to compete with the best in the world and a key part of competitiveness is controlling the cost of production.

AHDB’s new Farmbench system, allows producers to input either whole farm or enterprise specific data to suit their needs. Costs can be split across beef, sheep, potato and arable enterprises, with dairy coming online in 2018.

Farmbench is one of the tools to help manage resilience to risks and to cope with volatility. Our industry is likely to experience significantly greater exposure to fluctuating prices, currency swings and adverse climatic events, impacting the resilience of many farm businesses.

This user-friendly and intuitive tool allows you to shine a spotlight on where you can fine-tune your business decisions and provide a comparison to your peers through aggregated and anonymised data.
