The paper analyses the machinery costs associated with the performance of the individual operations when growing and harvesting the legume-cereal intercrops (LCI). For this purpose, a database of costs associated with the individual operations concerning the LCI growing has been created. This database is continuously updated in such a way that it enables to estimate variable costs associated with the individual LCI growing and harvesting operations. The authors followed up and analysed the process of growing and harvesting the LCI as a fodder crop and preserving the harvested material in the form of haylage and silage or for grain (both wet and dry). The analysed data were obtained in the course of the individual operations of machinery used in the individual technologies of establishing and growing of the LCI under the conditions of organic farming.Keywords:
