Software/mechanism for tracking community agriculture partners

Asked May 19, 2015, 2:23 PM EDT

Is there software or common technology solutions used by county extension offices, soil and water conservation districts, or other organizations that partner with many farmers to track the activities of those farmers? For example, software that would track basic information about the farm, along with any funds they have been awarded for projects, technical assistance they have requested, and other information that would help track the development of farms and agricultural initiatives over time?

Ideally this would be something that multiple employees at an organization could access and update.

Hi -

Most county extension offices in Ohio use Microsoft Excel or Microsoft Access to manage database information. Access is the best option if you are looking to 'manage people profiles' such as the information you are looking at in your question.
