9 – Categorising farm costs and farm revenue common feature of traditional smallholder dairying and are key reasons for its predominance in developing countries. In fact, with low labour costs, there are few economies of scale in production due to limited incentive or means to invest in scale-dependent technology.

Farm management draws on agricultural economics for information on prices, markets, agricultural policy, and economic institutions such as leasing and credit.

Vegetable production operations range from small patches of crops, producing a few vegetables for family use or marketing, to the great, highly organized and mechanized farms common in the most technologically advanced countries.

In technologically developed countries the three main types of vegetable farming are based on production of vegetables for the fresh market,   Division of Labour implies large scale production. Large number of workers is needed.

Further Division of Labour and use of machinery go together, large amounts will have to be spent on machinery. If the required number of labour and capital are not forthcoming, Division of Labour cannot be extended and cannot be possible to the required ://   Another important point to note is that labour is not only a factor of production.

The supplier of labour—the worker—is also a consumer. Thus, labour plays a dual role in a modern economy. Labour is both the subject and the object of production.
