Land Access, Regulations and Certifications

Adding Open Source Software to Your Farming Toolbelt

  • Paul Weidner, FarmOS
  • Interested in how to integrate technology with your farming operation? There are many ways to use technology on the farm but it can be hard to know where to start. This session will highlight open source projects relevant to farmers as well as anyone else working in the food system. First we will demo farmOS, an application for farm management, planning, and record keeping. Next we will walk through a series of use cases exploring projects in the OpenTEAM platform, a technology ecosystem that enables adaptive management to improve production and delivery of ecosystem services and actionable research. Come learn how software built on an open source model creates more value for its users by encouraging collaboration within the community.
