Today's farmers need current and accurate farm management information. The Internet, and specifically the World Wide Web (web), is a powerful tool to efficiently and effectively deliver this information. Rutgers Cooperative Extension developed a web site to host agricultural production budgets for three cropping systems (conventional, integrated crop management and organic) for crops raised in the northeastern United States. Since budget information needs to be kept current if it is to be of real value to a farmer, we determined that the best way to keep the information up to date was to provide a separate, interactive HTML form that could be viewed and submitted from a users' standard web browser. The interactive web site enables farm management specialists to provide costs and returns information on current agricultural practices in a timely manner. This web site is accessible via the Rutgers Cooperative Extension Farm Management Home Page.
