Viewing the Production Unit Costing report

The Production Unit Costing report lists the costs for different production units. Production units are the inventory units you’ve set up in your inventory accounts (for example, tonne, head, bushels, litres, etc.). You’ll be able to get feedback, on a per unit basis, from the information that you’ve entered into your AgExpert Analyst accounting system.
