farmOS is a web-based application for farm management, planning, and record keeping. It is developed by a community of volunteers and aims to provide a standard platform for farmers, developers, and researchers to build upon.
The farmOS server is built on top of Drupal, which makes it modular, extensible, and secure. The farmOS Field Kit app provides offline data entry in a native Android/iOS app, and as a progressive web app (PWA) at https://farmOS.app.
