Open Source Friday – Agriculture Model
I’ve donated my time to a number of projects over the course of the past three and half years I’ve spent here in Cambodia. Instead of collecting dust in the black abyss of some Windows folder, I figure I might as well share some of these plans, tools, models, etc. in the hope that others may benefit from it. I came up with “Open Source Friday” after spending hours in deep thought about naming such an initiative (kidding).
This week I’d like to share a model I came up with for an organic orchard in rural Cambodia. This model allows a scalable farm, including pretty accurate planting and revenue assumptions/projections for a number of different types of plants/trees.
While the model is comprehensive on the revenue side, it is pretty simplistic on the cost side (primarily because I lacked time and the access to technical knowledge to develop a more accurate system). The model also needs a bit of work on the IS/BS/CF to tie everything together.
If anyone finds this useful, please drop a note. Would love to hear how it is used.
