FARM is a real-time and historical climate information tool for fertilizer and manure application.
Welcome to the Field Application Resource Monitor (FARM). Water quality is important to all Ohioans and we all impact our watersheds. In recent years, Ohio farmers have taken significant positive steps toward limiting the negative impacts on water quality that come from the loss of sediment and nutrients. FARM allows users to define their locations of interest and receive 12- and 24-hour precipitation forecasts to aid in the application of fertilizer, manure, and/or pesticides. FARM also utilizes a database of historical forecasts allowing users to search previous dates. Users can choose to create accounts with multiple fields, explore statewide conditions in quick-view, and will soon be able to sign-up for text alerts coming in spring 2018.
This project is made possible through a Connect and Collaborate Grant, a program supporting innovative and scholarly engagement programs that leverage academic excellence of The Ohio State University in mutually beneficial ways with external partners.
