Whole Farm Management with FarmOS [Webinar]

March 8, 2019 @ 7:30 am - 8:00 am

Free

They say “What gets measured, gets managed.” Given that there is a lot to manage on a working farm, effective record-keeping tools are essential to the success of any farm business.

During this free webinar, we’ll introduce FarmOS: a free, flexible, and powerful web-based tool for managing farm records for everything from crop planning, to pest management, to livestock inventories. FarmOS has a growing user base of farmers, researchers, and developers—including organizations like PASA, the University of Vermont Extension, and the US Forest Service.

Among other capabilities, FarmOS lets you map your crop fields, view soil maps, and use modules to track when to plant, cultivate your fields, and apply soil amendments. You can also use FarmOS to contribute to PASA’s Soil Health Benchmark Study and our other farm-based research projects, which let you benchmark your farming practices to learn what’s typical—and what’s possible—for maximizing the benefits of cover crops, managing tillage, or reducing inputs.

By participating in this webinar, you’ll understand how to get started using FarmOS to improve whole farm management. Webinar participants are eligible for free FarmOS hosting via a PASA server.
