The entities that operate in the agricultural activity, during the management must make decisions, which depend a lot on the information that is available in the opportune moment. Timely information and reliable accounting records are essential in this process. For the measurement of biological assets at fair value, there must be an active market. The fair value is based on the current location and condition of the asset and will therefore result from its price in the relevant market.
