Digital Farm Records – Easy Conversion from Notebook

“My guess is that almost all are still using a dashboard notebook of some sort in combination, of course, with the farm management information system,” says Dennis Buckmaster, Professor of Agricultural and Biological Engineering at Purdue as well as a Dean’s Fellow for Digital Agriculture, “but some of those records that were handwritten or in a folder… don’t get used in combination with the farm management information system,” Dennis spoke at the Digital Ag Showcase on September 8, 2022, in West Lafayette (Hoosier Ag Today).

Buckmaster is doing very interesting work on free digital toolkits that are available to farmers. Airtable, an online platform, runs the toolkits. The toolkits are designed to improve farm data sorting, aggregation, and analysis. It also helps with reporting. He has worked on several toolkits during the past year. Read more and watch demonstration videos about these toolkits. Links to database templates are also included in these articles.
