BENCHMARKING FARMS PRACTISING CONSERVATION AGRICULTURE

ProCam and Groundswell are piloting a benchmarking project to establish
the true financial performance of Conservation Agriculture systems. This
will enable discussion and knowledge transfer between farmers adopting
these systems. This data will also be compared to conventional systems
to compare viability in the long term.

• Unique group focused on Conservation Agriculture
• Whole-farm benchmarking from reconciled accounts looking at the farm
and rotational margin on Conservation Agriculture farms
• Financial data alongside physical performance
• Comparison of anonymous farm data with other practitioners and
conventional systems
• Part of wider knowledge transfer through on-farm discussion groups
focused on Conservation Agriculture
• Cost allocation on agreed basis across the group applied to each farm,
including cover crops
• All information remains confidential with data sets anonymised

Figures will be produced from financial accounts and on farm accounts and crop recording software. Independently prepared by partnering Agricultural Consultants, management accounts will enable fully reconciled data samples to be used in discussion groups by participating farmers. The data will be updated periodically through to completed crops sales to report the true farming return.
