The Farmer Exchange
Farmer Exchange will be a web application for farmers to collaborate with each other, share knowledge, experiences & best practice, to improve productivity and business success.
Farmer can create a detailed member profile where they can save their interests, experience levels with different systems/enterprises/technologies and information/advice they may be seeking. Based on details a member adds to their profile they will automatically see relevant content and questions.
It is a not for profit project and is free for farmers to use.
Learn more about the Exchange here.
