Such instrument provides the understanding of all factors together that affect in the company result. Thus, the rural managers have a map to make their business decisions. Moreover, another factor that must be detached is the idiosyncrasies of rural firms, and specifically from smallholder farms.

The intention here is to provide for rural managers a efficient tool to concentrated and control the financial and non-financial aspects from a rural firm.
