What is WinMax?

Program history

WinMax is a computer program developed at Purdue University to calculate and compare economic returns on crop production.

From 1991-1998, WinMax and its earlier DOS version were used to manage data for the national Farming for Maximum Efficiency program (The MAX®) sponsored by the Conservation Technology Information Center and Successful Farming magazine.

WinMax manages crop input data, calculates crop fertilizer recommendations, generates production cost and nutrient management worksheets, and allows sets of custom input costs to be created and used in all calculations.

Various management options, such as tillage, pest control and fertilizer strategies, can be compared to help assess which practices are both economically efficient and environmentally sound.
