Hi Johannes- Sure, you have permission to use the sample data, and one 
or two of the enterprise budgets. And here is a link to a project I 
worked on that might be of interest to you: .

And you might check out BeetClock on Google Play, a phone app for 
tracking farm crop budget inputs, including the tough one, labor hours.

Good luck with your project.

Best, Richard.
