Event Details

 

Agricultural Labor Management:

Cultivating Personnel Productivity


By Gregorio Billikopf

This workshop will be conducted in Spanish

 

Why Attend:

 “There is much that farmers do not have control over, and what they do control, they control through people. How these people are hired, managed and motivated makes a huge difference. Labor management is much more than forms and paperwork. It is more about finding creative new ways of increasing productivity and reducing loss. About 40% to 70% of costs in production agriculture are related to labor costs. Thus, it seems that effective management of these costs plays a vital role in the competitiveness of agricultural producers.” Gregorio Billikopf.
