You Can't Manage What You Don't Measure 

Monday, March 7, 2022
12 p.m.

Farm consultant and founder of Plant to Profit Ellen Polishuk will cover what kinds of numbers we need in order to get to Full Cost of Production. Then, how are you going to get those numbers this season so we can mess around with them next winter? This is an attempt to not say the energy-killing words "record keeping"! But that's what we are going to strategize about–how exactly are you going to capture the data you want?
