The focus of this project is on extending a new method known as the farm site development method that is developed by focusing on industrial engineering techniques. This new method allows farmers / farm managers to expand the critical resources involved in production as well as the farm to a fully saturated state. During the process of circumscription of this method in 2013; certain deficiencies were identified where improvements can be made. The new and extended farm site development method is evaluated by demonstrating a practical example at a crop growing farm in KwaZulu-Natal. The implementation of this method allows the designers to identify further deficiencies that will improve the farm site development method.
