farmOS

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. A client app is also in the works to provide native (Android/iOS) and offline functionality. Both are licensed under the GNU General Public License, which means they are free and open source.

To learn how to use farmOS, refer to the User Guide.

You can contribute to the project by making a donation or contributing in other ways.
