Farm Economic Analysis Tool (FEAT)

FEAT Online

FEAT Online is a free tool developed to assist Australian sugarcane growers to measure farm profit and evaluate the impact of different farming system changes.  Users can test different farming options before making financial commitments.  The tool streamlines data entry, makes it easy to assess multiple scenarios, and is accessible through tablets or computers. Users can control the level of detail and refer to the user guide for assistance. Features include easy access to:

  • Detailed farm performance reports
  • Regional examples for key sugarcane growing areas
  • Comparing farming systems
  • Sharing scenarios between users

FEAT User Guide and Regional Scenarios

To support the use of FEAT, the department has developed a FEAT User Guide and five Regional Examples, which have been prepopulated with example data. The Regional Examples and FEAT User Guide can be accessed by registered users of FEAT online.

The Regional Examples were created with the purpose of demonstrating the functionality of FEAT. The operations, input costs and yields used in these scenarios may reflect broad regional trends but are not reflective of any individual situation. Information on major parameters is contained in a Regional Examples Information Sheet (that can also be accessed by registered users of FEAT Online).
