Vegmarc II©: A Computerized Record Keeping System for Vegetable Marketing Cooperatives

Tamra Kirkpatrick Kazmierczak and Daniel Taylor

Journal of Agricultural and Applied Economics, 1989, vol. 21, issue 1, 149-155

Abstract: Poor management of the southeastern vegetable marketing cooperatives has been linked to poor record keeping practices. The VEGMARC II© Record Keeping Program is part of a comprehensive multi-agency effort to provide solutions to the problems of south-eastern vegetable marketing cooperatives. This computer program has been refined and expanded during four years of field testing. VEGMARC II© features include pool price calculations, deduction of packing fees, calculation of grower net returns, and the printing of reports, checks, and mailing labels. Eighty percent of cooperatives responding to user surveys indicated the program was meeting the needs of their cooperative.
