Documenting a contract harvest agreement – what you need to know

Published: 1 Oct 2017


Key points

  • A well-constructed contract harvest agreement that covers the critical aspects of the contract harvesting operation will minimise the potential areas of contention once harvest begins and when the invoice arrives after completion
  • The agreement needs to clearly state what is required by both parties to make sure the harvesting operation is carried out efficiently and with minimal loss of grain and that the required resources from both parties are in place prior to the operation starting
  • The agreement can help to reduce the potential losses from harvest being delayed, slowed, rushed, or stopped altogether through poor communication
  • Working in with the contractor and making their job easier will pay dividends in the long run
