The methodology used in this study is qualitative approach by investigating financial statements of agricultural public listed companies for the year 2011. The

It also shows that many bearer biological assets need more than one reporting period to be ready to produce other biological assets or agriculture produce to be harvest. According to IAS 41, these biological assets should be recorded using fair value model, however this model will not be appropriate. This findings lead to another questions what is the valuation appropriate for biological assets which have different characteristics.
