The article discusses the risks in investing on farming and suggests the use of restructuring to earn more profit in Great Britain. Combinable crop farms entering joint ventures should try to budget on £173-£ 198/ha (£70-£80/acre) for machinery and labour costs. Such a venture is potentially the most profitable for the example farm, but there are risks other than financial. INSET: CEREALS VIEW.
