Abstract:
The study is an evaluation of the time required for work on an organic farm in Vienna, wich was carried out in the form of a case study, with data from the year 2000. The goal of our work is to use the documented labor hours as basis for economic calculations, as starting points and guidelines for improvements zo our business, and above all, as the basis for implementing workers on our commercial organic fruit farm. The final evaluation of the data is based on work protocols from four employees and the manager taken during the growing season from February to November. The farm and the studies carried out are thoroughly described and the results are presented in bar graphs, showing man hours for each stage of production. In the year 2000, 9,9 man hours were needed for the production of one hectare of organic wheat, 6,8 man hours for one hectare of barley, and 7,2 man hours for one hectare of field peas. The KTBL Taschenbuch Landwirtschaft 2002/03 an agricultur handbook lists the required work time per hectare with the same stages of production for 1,2 and 5 hectare plots, and shows a significant increase in efficiency with the bigger plots. It is also worthy of note that, apart from a few particularities specific to our farm, the required work time for the three crops corresponded to our own data.
