SIMPLE MANAGEMENT TECHNIQUES FOR ADVISERS
Even so, quite elementary techniques will still be needed in the foreseable future, if much progress is to be achieved with the majority of horticultural businesses in the British Isles. For while there is an encouraging increase in the numbers of growers who are seeking management advice, the general level of management accounting remains very weak. And many horticultural advisers themselves have had little practical training to equip them for management work, while the amount of time they can allocate to an individual case is limited by the increasing extent of their other duties.
Thus it is appropriate to give thought to the development of new simple techniques for use in advisory work, and to the improvement and further simplification of established methods.
