Accounting in Agriculture - New Experts Guide

1 March 2001

Accounting methods on Canadian crop farms and assessing assets in Australian vineyards are just two of the topics covered by a new guide to agricultural accounting.

Agricultural Accounting: Perspectives and Issues (2nd Edition) is edited by Roger Juchau (Foundation Professor of Accounting & Management, University of Western Sydney) and Paul Hill (Senior Lecturer, Imperial College at Wye). Its aim is to provide the reader with a selection of key writings in agricultural accounting during the period 1990-99. Contents range from Comparing Canadian and US Agricultural Financial Reporting to Accounting for Forestry Assets and Financial Statements used to Evaluate a Swine Operation.

Co-Editor, Paul Hill, says the book is not designed as "an exhaustive guide to the issues and practices which have dominated professional literature." It should, however, "be a useful prompt to help provide students and practitioners alike with a deeper appreciation and understanding of accounting within agriculture."

Copies of the new publication are available priced £10, plus £3 post and packing, from Paul Hill at Imperial College's Wye campus, Wye, Ashford, Kent TN25 5AH [Cheques should be made payable to Imperial College at Wye].
