Reduce Desk Time, Improve Management with Software

It is exciting to see so many software applications being developed to support farms. They just keep coming  faster than we can keep up with as educators. Farmers are adopting these systems to streamline office time, improve customer communication and increase the accuracy of records and decision making.

Here is a snap shot of various information management systems (IMS) that are being offered for farms. If you are using these products or considering it, please contact UVM Extension Farm Viability. We are hoping to host workshops later this fall to showcase different software programs that farms are having success with.
