Understanding how your farm business finances are performing is integral to being able to make smart decisions relating to the activities that you carry out in your farming operation. While the profit and loss statements and balance sheets included in your tax return provide important figures for the operation of your farm business, the financial data that they provide can be broken down even further to provide more meaningful information which can be used to assess the performance of your farm business finances over time.

Growers generally have an idea as to where their business is heading however this vision or concept is often not shared, verbalised or documented. The Hort360 Better Business module provides you with a business plan that will enable you to bring all concerned to the same page while providing a platform for future development.

Hort360 is the best management practice program for horticulture. It is an online risk assessment tool designed to give you a 360-degree view of your farm business operation. Hort360 is accessible via a Growcom facilitator and/or your own login.

By participating in Hort360 you will have the opportunity to access on-farm technical support, on-farm training, professional networks and certification against Freshcare Environmental. All this will enable you to increase efficiencies, reduce costs, improve productivity and product quality, and build wealth.
