New case study about Agribusiness


Adrian ZicariTeaching Professor, Accounting and Management Control Department and Director of the Center of Excellence Management and Society (CEMAS) and Eduardo Pordoming, Visiting Professor, National University of Pampa (Argentina), have published a new study case



The case illustrates the process for crop planning in an agricultural firm in Argentina. This planning process intends to address some particular risks that the company faces (climate risk, price risk). During this planning process, decision makers struggle to balance short-term profit objectives with a longer-term perspective, particularly the preservation of land productivity. The case provides actual data (prices, yields) for several crops during the last five years along with estimated production costs. The case concludes with the decision that managers have to make for the following year's crop.
