The agricultural machinery management system plays a great role in today's R06;farming, for its importance in making a profitable farm returns.R06; This study was conducted at Guneid Sugar Scheme to evaluate the farm R06;machinery management system during the seasons 2002/03 and 2003/04 in R06;terms of individual farm machinery costs, farm operations costs, rates of work, R06;and power requirements. R06; Comparison was made between the actual records of the scheme and the R06;standard management calculations carried out for the different farm machinery R06;parameters.R06; It was observed that, there were no significant differences between the actual R06;and calculated costs for the individual farm machinery make in the season and R06;between the two studied seasons. But the farm machinery makes revealed R06;highly significant differences in the individual mean costs value (P X04; 0.05). The R06;results showed that the costs types (actual and calculated) of the individual R06;farm machinery were varied. The average actual cost of the tractors in the two R06;seasons found to be less than the calculated by 6.73%, while it was greater for R06;the implements by 4.75%. Also the actual field operations costs were differ R06;from the calculated ones for the same field operation and between the two R06;seasons by 0.002%. But highly significant differences were observed between R06;the different field operations (P X04; 0.05). The calculated rates of work were R06;greater from the actual ones by 15.58%. This variation revealed no significant R06;difference between them. The average actual power used in the scheme was R06;greater from the calculated power requirement by 18.83%.R06; Accordingly, it’s important to improve the farm machinery management R06;system by proper recording of information’s, and better selection of farm R06;machinery.
