NRMFARM is providing producers with a free online farm records management tool, building efficiencies and productivity within their businesses.
Developed in partnership with Natural Resources South East (SE), nrmFARM is an online farm management program for farmers, horticulturalists, and rural property owners in the Natural Resources SA Murray-Darling Basin (SAMDB) and SE regions.
The online tool allows users to map key attributes on their properties and record farming actions and activities that have been undertaken.
Natural Resources SAMDB land and water management team coordinator Tony Randall said
nrmFARM lets users record information such as crop and livestock types, fencing and irrigation, soil improvement and fertiliser applications, chemical applications, animal husbandry activities, spraying and baiting, soil test results and much more.
“The program is compatible with a broad range of commodities that are farmed within the SAMDB region and is suitable for farms and rural properties of all sizes,” he said.
“NrmFARM is easy and practical to use, and provides users with the ability to maintain, cross reference and collate farm records either by paddock or property.
“This is an excellent tool that supports whole farm planning and sustainable farm management.”
Training sessions on nrmFARM have been rolled out across the region and will continue throughout 2017 and 2018.
A user guide is available, providing tips and tricks for users, with Natural Resources SAMDB staff available to assist those who wish to take advantage of the farm management tool.
