Soil Health Tech Tools Watch Party: FarmOS
Wednesdays, September 9 and 23, 2020
Our next party of the year, focused on FarmOS, is scheduled for Wednesday, September 9, 2020. RSVP to receive a confirmation email containing information about joining us via Zoom. At the end of this email you’ll find information on the free FarmOS app and where to download it before the party.
In the two weeks following the watch party, we’ll send out tasks every few days for you to try on your own operations, and we’ll organize a listserv where you can ask questions and share ideas with other participants. On Wednesday, September 23, we’ll come back together online to discuss insights and challenges!
FarmOS is an online record keeping system designed to help producers track their day-to-day management decisions and farm activities in a detailed way. The web-based application runs on any device with a web browser (laptop, desktop, smart phone, or tablet). FarmOS has been developed by a community of farmers, developers, researchers, and organizations with the aim of providing a standard platform for agricultural data collection and management. The application currently has four main record types designed to help manage farm and ranching operations: Area, Assets, Logs, and People. It is a free and open source software, and can be downloaded and hosted by anyone, or hosted by a paid service such as Farmier.
At our watch party, you will learn to:
- Navigate the FarmOS web application and utilize all of its features.
- Map and define the area of your ranch and/or agricultural fields in FarmOS.
- Record your farm/ranch assets in farmOS.
- Input events into the Log function of FarmOS to track management activities.
- Add people to your farm/ranch management in farmOS and assign user access.
- Export your saved management data into a .csv document that can be saved offline and accessed through spreadsheet applications, such as Excel.
