Survey of New York Farmers Using On-Farm Computers
Aldrich, James M.; Knoblauch, Wayne A.
The advent of relatively inexpensive microcomputer technology has brought computing capability into the office or headquarters of many businesses previously unable to afford computing. Agricultural production is one of those businesses. Many farmers are inquiring about computer purchases and program availability. The purpose of this survey was to determine the current "state of the art" in the use of microcomputers on farmsto gather information on types of equipment being used, programs in use and their sourceand to identify areas where computer program development is needed for on-farm computers. By identifying those farmers currently using computers, we could facilitate a sharing of ideas, programs, and experiences among those who responded to the survey.
