The created enterprise budgets in the empirical approach are based on statistical data, panel analysis and field tests. With the aim of providing accurate and applicable enterprise budgets and farm business model related to the panel analysis, an Advisory Group was formed, consisting of four experts within the field. The field test was conducted to four types of farms (registered farmer, family farmer, experienced farmer and young farmer) aiming to test and examine the accomplished budget calculations along with the present situation. In general, record keeping gives information about the past activities and can present an information basis for farm business planning. Record keeping can improve the overall understanding of the farmers about the importance of the farm business plan.
