The Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC) recognises that efficient use of time and labour is critical for today’s busy grain producers.

To assist growers in their endeavours to generate increased efficiencies on their properties and within their businesses, the GRDC has released a new Farm Labour Fact Sheet. The Improving Time Management and Labour Efficiency Fact Sheet, produced as part of the GRDC’s Farm Business Management initiative, offers practical advice on building time management skills. 

Improving Time Management and Labour Efficiency Fact Sheet

The Fact Sheet, which can be viewed and downloaded via www.grdc.com.au/GRDC-FS-FarmLabour-TimeManagement, encourages the creation of task lists and the use of tools to help prioritise and complete tasks. 

Tips on how to create a task list and an example of a weekly task list are provided in the Fact Sheet, along with a time management matrix, an example of an annual calendar outlining labour hours allocated to tasks, and some pointers on the use of timesheets.
