Crop Planning SoftwareCrop Planning Software for small farmers and serious gardeners. Plan for and manage the myriad crops, varieties and plantings required to keep a modern, intensive market garden producing throughout the growing season. This is a cross-platform (Windows, Mac, Unix, etc) desktop application that allows small farmers and gardeners to: Create, duplicate and delete crops and plantings; inherit data from other plantings and crops; key in a few data and let the program calculate the rest for you; sort and filter your plantings. These are all possible and new features are being added all the time. The software has been released as open source, free software and therefore is and will always be available free of charge.

Missed a planting? Don't delete it, just ignore it (ie, "skip" it) to get it out of the way. New! Plantings can be explicitly marked as direct seeded or transplanted and can have different planting data accordingly. What it Doesn't Do ... Yetseed sourcing and estimation of amounts needed fertilizer recommendations estimation of labor needs across the season tracking actual yields (though yield estimation IS supported) "sanity checks": warnings about tender plantings around frost dates, too many plantings scheduled for land base and/or GH space, etc Important Notice: For Testing OnlyThis software is currently under development and is changing rapidly.
