The level and structure of costs incurred in the operation of two generations of combine harvesters ('Vistula' and 'Bizon Super'), at the Ulhowek crop station in Poland between 1966-85 were examined. Different approaches to the calculation of operating costs were compared by looking at the cost of harvesting: with one machine; for one hour; with one worker; over a 1 ha area; and to produce 1 t of grain.
