A software application for the personal computer has been developed using the macro languages of Lotus l-2-3 Release 2.2 and the spreadsheet compiler Baler XE Release 1.0E to provide Easter lily (Lilium longiflorum Thunb.) growers with a tool to track and predict various developmental stages of the crop during greenhouse forcing.

Abstract

The Fast Agricultural Communications Terminal System (FACTS) is a computer-based communications system with intelligent terminals in each Indiana County Extension office, departmental offices at Purdue, and linkage to a central computer. A program was developed to plan a home vegetable garden which included 27 vegetables, data on crop placement, planting dates, general cultural information and yield data. The program was based on input and predetermined yield data. It has been widely accepted by neophyte as well as experienced gardeners and is a prototype for additional programs in home horticulture.

Computer-aided design (CAD) is rapidly becoming an indispensable tool for landscape architects and designers. This has created the need for a simple-to-use, inexpensive, and readily available configuration for introducing computer-aided design on a limited budget to landscape students. This introduction to computer-aided landscape design can be accomplished easily and accurately using the 512K Macintosh computer and the software package MacDraw. Techniques are reported for shading, layering, and customizing plant and groundcover symbols, allowing a personal touch that is lacking in some more-advanced CAD packages. Computer-generated pages can be collaged to make full-sized landscape drawings, which are then copied onto reproduction vellum. In this manner, the design capability is not limited by the size of the minter. This design configuration is currently in use and was used to generate the design and the symbol illustrated.

Abstract

A computer program was written to allow fast tracing of pedigrees from a computer file of parentage records and which lists the pedigree of any requested individual or progeny in 2 forms. The first output format is a listing adapted to integration with another program which calculates inbreeding coefficients and coefficients of coancestry; the second output format is a family tree.

Abstract

A computer program (FLORALMART) was developed to aid the commercial greenhouse grower and retail florists/garden center in locating plants and flowers. The Fast Agricultural Communications Terminal System (FACTS) is a microcomputer network linking each County Extension office and campus office in Indiana with communications to a central front-end computer on the Purdue campus. Businesses may list and search for products they wish to buy or sell. County information is maintained on the local machine while the statewide data base is maintained on the FACTS frontend machine at Purdue Univ.
