Do you get frustrated with chemical application calculations; keeping ounces, pounds and acres straight? Spring planting requires plenty of record keeping and calculations to keep one up at night, unless you have a helpful tool. Duane Owens farms near Mankato, Minn., but he loves to tinker with his computer as well. He put his skills together and developed a spreadsheet that he'd like to share for wrestling through all the calculations and record keeping.
This is part of the Spreadsheet of the Month series that has run in Farm Futures since 2004. You can download the spreadsheet using the link below and put it to work on your farm for spring 2014. The spreadsheet should work with Excel 2000, 2002, 2010 or Excel XP. You can download it by clicking on the link below.
