A Gross Margin is the calculated difference (margin) between the value of the OUTPUT of an enterprise less the variable costs (INPUT expenses) used to produce that output.
For some 50 years,Gross Margin analysis has been the go-to tool of economists, farm advisers and entrepreneurs wanting to know whether an actual or a planned enterprise, farm or project is earning money i.e. is financially viable.
A Gross Margin provides a single-figure estimate that combines the technical performance of an enterprise, the economic circumstances in which it is being implemented and is conditioned by the business acumen of the implementer.
As such Gross Margins may be used to:
  • Assess the performance of a single enterprise, in the same project or on the same farm, in different seasons or years.
  • Compare the performance of different enterprises in the same project or on the same farm.
  • Compare the performance of similar enterprises in different projects or on different farms.
Our Gross Margin Calculator (GMC) is designed to provide an immediate read-out and global enterprise average for all users entering data. Registered users, that is projects or farmers who have registered and submitted details of their projects or farms to TechTalk and have received a username and password and have logged-in, will receive not only the same read-out and global average, but will also receive down-loadable breakdowns of their performance, up-to-date league tables of similar enterprises by country and farm system; and access to storage files for their data which they may revisit at any time.
All users should enter data following the instructions noted on the first page of the GMC. You choose country, currency, crop or livestock type, farming system and enter a reference number of your choice that identifies the specific data entry that you are making.
