Agricultural management bodies and local agriculture are built by using various things (assets). The monetary value of an item is usually determined by cost (acquisition cost), and useful lifetime. However, from the standpoint of users, the value of a good is determined by its profitability, convenience, sentimental value and the like. There is little relation between acquisition cost and sentimental value. Usually, evaluations of a product differ from one person to the next.
My goals are to understand the differences in how products are evaluated and to determine the monetary valuation of common assets used in agricultural rural areas that is most accepted by the users of those assets.
If the target of the evaluation is a person, the gap between the value placed on work by an agricultural worker him- or herself may differ from the value placed on the same work by the employer, and this disparity may cause various problems. The monetary evaluation of labor by workers is also the subject of our study.
