A whole farm planning computer program has been developed as part of the LISA funded project on Sustaining and Managing Agriculture for Tomorrow. Planetor is the central part of the computer decision support system. It helps farmers and ranchers evaluate both the economic and environmental aspects of their farming practices. Sub-routines in the program include soils, crops and rotations, livestock, overhead, net returns, environmental factors (erosion, water quality, pesticide toxicity), economics, diversification effects, and risk assesment. This program is being introduced to Extension representatives in all Western states in October, 1990.
