Abstract
  • Many agricultural producers are using computerized database management systems to maintain and analyze their records. Very powerful database management systems now available for desktop computers are used in a wide variety of agricultural applications. Machinery, crop, livestock, and payroll records are all commonly maintained with database management systems. The success (or failure!) of your computerized agricultural record-keeping activities may depend in part on the database management system you use to keep your records. Choosing the system most appropriate for your needs can be quite a challenge, given the number of programs currently on the market. If you're not familiar with database management systems, you should read WREP 107, Introduction to Database Management Systemsfor Agricultural Record Keeping. It explains the basic terms and concepts associated with using a database management system. We assume you have mastered this introductory material—and are now ready to select a system. This publication will present several hardware and software factors to consider in selecting a database management system for your agricultural record-keeping needs. After examining each of these factors, use the checklist (page 7) to evaluate and select a database management system.
