Agricultural cost accounting development in Britain: the contributions of three men from Wye - a review note


  • Roger Juchau
  • Paul Hill


This note summarizes the contributions of three agriculturalists (Hall, Orwin and Wyllie) to agricultural cost accounting development in Britain in the early twentieth century. Through an examination of their writings and advocacies, an account is provided of their pioneering work in applying cost accounting to farm activity in Britain. Some contrary positions on agricultural costing that also emerged during their period of advocacy are also outlined.
