AgriTechTalk International CIC is a Community Interest Company, created to improve food security in poorer, marginalized communities through the provision of technical support through projects and programmes funded by grants and donations.

A Gross Margin is the calculated difference (margin) between the value of the OUTPUT of an agricultural enterprise less the variable costs (INPUT expenses) used to produce that output.
For some 50 years, Gross Margin analysis has been the go-to tool of economists, farm advisers and entrepreneurs wanting to know whether an actual or a planned enterprise, farm or project is earning money i.e. is financially viable.
A Gross Margin provides a single-figure estimate that combines the technical performance of an enterprise, the economic circumstances in which it is being implemented and is conditioned by the business acumen of the implementer.
As such Gross Margins may be used to:-
Assess the performance of a single enterprise, in the same project or on the same farm, in different seasons or years.
Compare the performance of different enterprises in the same project or on the same farm.
Compare the performance of similar enterprises in different projects or on different farms.
The TechTalk Gross Margin Calculator (GMC) is designed to provide an immediate read-out and global enterprise average for all users entering data.
Registered users, that is projects or farmers who have submitted details of their projects or farms to “TechTalk,” and have received a username and password and have logged-in, will receive not only the same read-out and global average, but will also receive down-loadable breakdowns of their performance, up-to-date league tables of similar enterprises by country and farm system; and, access to storage files for their data which they may revisit at any time.
