Providing relevant and timely information to farmers and agribusinesses is important for informed decision making. The internet provides a platform for timely and widely distributed information for decision making.
Ag Decision Maker is a subject matter development and delivery mechanism for providing timely and relevant information to agricultural decision makers. We have continued to expand the amount of agricultural business subject matter on Ag Decision Maker. 101 new subject matter files were added or updated this year.
During the past year, Ag Decision Maker became the primary web outreach mechanism for legal and tax materials developed by Roger McEowen. Roger prepared 92 current legal issues files over the last year.
Also, we substantially increased the amount of farmland leasing materials posted on the site to meet the needs of landlords and tenants during the current lease negotiation period.
The 2006/07 year has been another banner year for Ag Decision Maker. During the past 12 months, the usage of Ag Decision Maker has increased substantially. Below are the usage figures for July of 2007 and a comparison with July of 2006.
