Recording field activities is an open journal of what happens daily on your farm.
What should be documented in a field activities log?
The creation of a field activities log — notebook, binder of individual daily pages, calendar system, or online spreadsheet — provides clear and thorough documentation of what happens in the field(s). Some of the activities that should be included are seeding or transplanting, weed management, cultivation, harvesting, pest control activities, compost production, and more.
How do I ensure employees maintain up-to-date records?
Many farms either store binders at individual field sites to promote ease of use, collection, and compilation, or have a digital system to enter data immediately before or after a field activity is completed.
