Total Farm Management® is DKG’S Experience and Know How Methodology on Farm management.
It represents a collection of various management strategies and methods that are employed to keep a farm productive and profitable. The process of TFM® is associated with large commercial farms, although many of the same methods can be utilized with equal success on a small family-owned farm.
In many respects, TFM® is similar to the management processes that are employed with any type of business. There are decisions that must be made on a daily basis, as well as operational guidelines that must be observed by everyone who is involved with the operation.
Total Farm Management® is making and implementing of the decisions involved in organizing and operating a farm for maximum production and profit in a sustainable way. TFM® draws on agricultural economics for information on prices, markets, agricultural policy and economic institutions such as leasing and credit. It also draws on plant science for information on soils, propagation material, fertilizer; on control of weeds, insects, and disease; on agricultural engineering for information on farm buildings, machinery, irrigation, drainage, and erosion control systems; and on psychology and sociology for information on human behavior.
