Farm Recordkeeping Workshop for Hilo Growers

Dr. Stuart T. Nakamoto Extension Economist, UHM CTAHR
Wednesday, May 30, 2012
5:30 pm – 7:30 pm
Komohana Extension Office Conference Room

Free but phone 887-6183 to save a seat. Participants who preregister receive a free record keeping workbook.

It seems producers always need records for something; to get a loan, or for taxes, or because the law requires it for spraying chemicals, or to be “organic”. Good records are a prerequisite for crop insurance & disaster assistance and to help make better decisions in growing crops & for running your farm as a business.

This workshop is for you if you want to get started with recordkeeping you want to learn how to organize all those receipts and papers and notes you already have a system, but maybe can learn something extra to help your farm. Participants will receive a binder of recordkeeping forms. You will learn how to use those forms in your own recordkeeping system.
