Operations Worksheet

The Operations Worksheet helps you forecast the costs for machines, services or people needed during the cropping season. 

The relevant section of the AutoLinks window for the operation worksheet will look like this.

You can choose whether to link the operation input lines to the area, production or a combination.


Where a combination is selected, complete the following: 

  1. Enter the number of operations per Crop/Paddock required.
  2. Enter an Area and Production pattern as illustrated above.
  3. In the OPS cell, enter the number of times the activity was carried out, press enter.
  4. In the Month cell, press F5 or click the Months icon to select the month of payment, budget code and bank account to which it is to be allocated.
  5. Click the green tick or press F10 to save data. Repeat for other operation types.
  6. Repeat all the above steps if any data entry is required for remaining Crop or Paddock Types. 

Crop Type F5


Agrimaster will copy the Crop Type (crop names) from the Production Worksheet.

Operation Name F5


Press F5 and select an operation from the Cost List.

Area or Prod. Ha:T F5


Agrimaster will calculate the Operation from the Cost List. 

Agrimaster recognizes the Tonnes or Hectares from the Cost List and multiplies by the Area Ha or Total Yield. If you need to make a change to this, such as multiplying or dividing the number, press F5.

No. Ops.


Type the number of operations (people or machines) required to complete the work.

Total Ha or Tonne


Agrimaster multiplies the number of operations (No.Ops.) by the Area or Prod. Ha:T.

Price Unit


Agrimaster displays the type of measure, such as Tonnes or hectares.

Cost Per Unit


Agrimaster displays the amount of the cost from the Cost List.

Total Cost


Agrimaster calculates the total expense for the item in this row.

The total is Area or Prod. Ha:T x Total Ha or Tonne x Cost Per Unit.

Month F5


Press F5 to identify if there is a specific month for this cost 

Choose No distribution in the case where the harvest month can vary depending on weather and the readiness of the crop.

The No Distribution option will be displayed as a dashed line in the Month F5 column in contrast to specific month(s) for an Operation.


Repeat the data entry for each Operation cost in each Crop Type.

Add Blank Rows For Additional Operations

If you need an additional row for another operation for a crop:

  1. Go to the row underneath where you need a new row.
  2.  Click on the row number.
  3. Click on Insert line.

  4. After all data has been entered, click the green tick to save the worksheets.
