£150 sounds about average for strong land needing a plough at least rotationally. Some lower rates for DD systems and lighter soils. No management, storage, agronomy etc in that.

That's if you want to do nothing. For £150 I'd expect my yard bloody tidy, rats eradicated, and all the little annoying jobs that I think I would do myself but in reality wouldn't.

And moling as needed. And hedges. But probably not ditching.

Easy working farm?

Plough £20/acre
Drill/£25 acre
Roll £5/acre
Spray x4 £20
Fert x 2 £10
Combine £40
£120/acre total

What am I missing?
The extras to get to £150:

Load in, push up, load out, hedge cutting, general tidying, insurance, three more spray passes.

Granted, rolling, spraying, spreading are only really costing £1.50/AC.

You guys must spray a lot more than we do up here. I have only sprayed winter barley 3x will get glyphosate. So 4 total.

Most spring barley just 2 passes.

It says stubble to stubble, I'm just tipping it in shed. Not load it out again or tidying up.

Winter barley would be pre drill glypho, two herbicides, three fungicides, glypho again. Subsoil, disc& press, roll, drill, roll. Three passes fert to include p&k. Cut, cart, push up. Not light land though. For wheat add a pass of fert and spray.

Tbh spring barley on light land will be much less work.

I get someone in for the cutting, draught work. Keep the easy bits.
