The GreenChoice Farmer Field Book
This Farmer Field Book is a farm management system that is available in the form of record keeping books and as an Excel-based workflow. Using the spreadsheet, farmers can enter their daily farm activities such as hours tractor use, number of people weeding or clearing alien invasive plants etc. Based on labour, fertilizer and other input costs, the workflow will give the farmer reports with graphs and tables on yield per unit input, land use efficiency, biodiversity conserved, alien invasives cleared, soil and water health, human wildlife conflict, greenhouse gas emissions, and livelihoods. Carbon footprints can be determined using a carbon calculator from Unilever, The Cool Farm Tool.
