In Fall 2019, NPFI began working with the Dickinson College Farm to develop new open source farm management software that would extend the functionality of the current FarmData software.  FarmData was developed by Dickinson faculty and students and has been in productive use at the Dickinson College Farm since 2014.

This new software project, called FarmData2, was recently launched at Dickinson as part of its initiative to incorporate HFOSS development throughout its computer science program.  This project will provide current and future Dickinson students with new opportunities to engage directly in HFOSS development as part of their academic coursework.
