ARRANGEMENT OF FIELDS ON THE FARM AND THE DISTANCES AND EXPENDITURES IN INTERNAL TRANSPORT

key words: fields, farm, fields spread, transport distance, time expenditures, fuel consumption

Summary:

The paper describes the influence of the distribution - the arrangement of fields in relation to the economic center on the distance and the expenditure incurred in internal transport. The analysis was done for three variants W0 - current layout, W1 - approximation of fields to center by 50%, W2 - arrangement of all fields around the farm. The distance traveled was W0 - 1.11 km, W1 - 0.51 km (54.05% less to W0), W2 - 0.09 km (91.89% less to W0 and 82.23% less to W1. Analysis of the influence of the spread allows us to conclude that, with average journey time in variant 0 (4.0 h) in variant 2, the journey time decreased on average to 0.31 h, ie 12.9 times lower. On the other hand, the average fuel costs for the tested farms in PLN * ha-1 were as follows: W0 - PLN 120.27, W1 - PLN 65.25 (45.74% less than W0), W2-9.31 (992, by 25% less to W0 and 85.73% less on W1). At the same time, the direction of production and the intensity of production at the same time have a significant impact on the incurred expenditures .
