Measurement of standard times in horticulture

Actually the FAT database of standard times in horticulture is revised. In general standard times are measured in grape, appel, cherry and berry cultures and some single vegetable cultures.The application of the standard time methods is described by using different examples of horticultures. The focus is on the difference between standard times on the one hand and actual times being used for example as working reports. Standard times and standard times databases belong to the preferred planning instruments for consulting horticultural farms. In combination with economic calculation instruments the lack of work effiency in production systems can be revealed.
