Types of Computers and Their Use by Agricultural Cooperatives.
Thompson, Stanley R.; Garoian, Leon
Farmer cooperatives are rapidly adopting the computer as a managerial tool as indicated by their attempts to make greater and more sophisticated use of their computers since their initial installation. This report presents factual data on the popular criticism that many cooperatives are not using the computer to its fullest potential. The report provides general management and individuals responsible for computer installations with criteria that can be used for evaluating their particular computer efforts with that of other agricultural cooperatives. In addition, it provides extension economists with an evaluation of cooperative effectiveness in using the computer for managerial decision making. (Author)
