AgSquared Application Recently Re-launched

AgSquared is an online record-keeping platform that is designed for small-scale mixed vegetable growers.   It started on a simple premise: that better plans, streamlined management, and more complete records can help make farms more productive, more profitable and more sustainable.

Two college students through their travels and many conversations with farmers, began to zero in on a missing link in the sustainability equation – easy-to-use tools for successful farm planning, management and record keeping. Seeing so many farmers who, amidst the controlled chaos of a farming season, remain deeply committed to improving their practices, and yet still struggle to learn from their successes and failures, inspired them to tackle this problem.

Before programming even one line of code, they spent countless hours poring over farm notebooks, spreadsheets, and books about farm planning and management techniques, to figure out what farmers need, what works, and how to make software that farmers would actually use. They realized that the internet presented a huge opportunity for offering cutting-edge farming tools at a cost so low that anyone, no matter how small their operation, could afford it. In 2009, they founded AgSquared to create what they hope will be the perfect farm planning, management and record keeping software.

AgSquared will help with:

·       Planning - Get your season started on the right foot with crop planning tools that help you plan your planting schedule, calculate your seed order, and map your field layouts.

·       Management - Stay on top of your farming tasks all season long with a calendar smart enough to keep your production plans on schedule - even when things don't go exactly as planned.

·       Record Keeping - Simple record keeping tools help you keep track of everything that happens on your farm, and keep your records beautifully organized so that you can always find just what you're looking for.
