As strange as it sounds, many developing countries do not have sufficient statistical methodologies implemented among businesses, and neither have professionals that collaborate in the economic and social development of their companies. But not only is it important to know how to analyze the information of the facilities, but it is also necessary to have a planning and integration program that considers all the elements.
Due to the special characteristics of agricultural data, we cannot use a single type of technique or methodology to group and analyze them. Each situation, animal, facilities, … have their own peculiarities that mean that we must be prepared for different scenarios and have numerous sources for registration.
This seems like a controversy with the introductory paragraph of this post, where we were talking about one or two sheets. But it is not at all. What we were referring to is that we must have various sources adapted to different situations. Which is not efficient is to have 50 sheets on hand for each type of record (we would need more than 1,000 sheets for a day in such case).
But to understand your data you will also need a methodology for its valuation.
