Farm, estate and food industry managers must understand business management, finance, taxation and marketing to succeed in today's tough conditions, particularly in the light of increasing international trade between countries and the expansion of the capacity of agricultural production from previously un-developed rural economies. This third edition of Applied Farm Management has been fully updated and expanded to take account of these changes and highlights the interrelationship between these subjects.

The book, which takes a more holistic view than previous editions, takes account of all recent major changes in subjects such as strategic and environmental management, global foood scares, the international impact of infectious animal diseases and so on.

Applied Farm Management is an important international textbook for students studying agricultuaral sciences, farm business management, and food studies. It is also a useful reference source for all those working in farm and countryside management throughout the world. Libraries in all universities, agricultural colleges and research establishments where these subjects are studied and taught should have multiple copies of this important text on their shelves.
