Farmers Markets Price Reporting App Launched
ARE associate professor Margarita Velandia, in collaboration with Information Technology Services, has launched a new mobile application
called Farmers Markets Price Reporting, which gives approved reporters an easier method to input farmers market products and price
information. Using the reported data, the information is exported into a spreadsheet for easier and more e cient aggregation for compiling weekly state farmers markets price reports. These reports are used as
a valuable reference for producers when setting prices per market.
Those interested in becoming a farmers market price reporter can contact Velandia at mvelandia@utk.edu. Only authorized reporters will
have access to the app.
Three ARE faculty members completed their UTIA AgResearch Faculty Development Fellows Program, designed to provide practical information, assistance, and experience needed by pretenure faculty to be successful and competitive.
