Year of Publication2009

This paper presents a holistic farm management system combining formal management strategies, personal management goals and the technology used. The personal management goals have been identified and analysed. Six field operations have been identified to be the major operations during a growing season. These field operations have been analysed in terms of management goals. The structure for this analysis includes a description of each management goal; the principal information needed; the decision objective and the decision outcome. The analysis of the maximised return management goal during the fertilising application is presented. A case study to combine the organic farming standard and the personal management goals for the major field operations is also presented.
