Croptracker - Why Use Crop Management Software?

Crop & Farm Management Software is designed to help improve productivity and operational efficiency. Almost effortlessly, it allows growers to keep and store accurate records, monitor their team, keep tabs on their chemical applications and chemical inventory, and schedule and manage their production practice events. It also provides the real-time data growers need to make the right decisions at the right time.

Improved Profitability

Using crop management software allows growers and farm employees to easily view their costs of production, from the initial planting to field work, spraying, workcrews and labor, harvesting, packing, and shipping. When a grower has access to accurate data on all aspects of their business, it becomes simple to make decisions that increase profitability. Without accessible, real-time data, it is challenging to find ways to increase operational efficiency that lead to increased profits.

One of Croptracker's primary objectives when starting out was to help users improve their profitability. As a simple, easy-to-use cloud-based platform, Croptracker helps increase efficiency, reduce costs, and increase profit margins.

Labor makes up for 60% of crop production costs. With Croptracker, growers can schedule and record tasks and get an overview of everything that is happening on their farm or orchard. This bird's eye perspective makes accomplishing goals and managing teams easier. Croptracker's labor productivity reports can also help growers track trends and identify areas for improvement in their team set-up. Track employee work hours, piece-rates, and calculate labor costs with ease. Maximize labour efficiency, make better decisions for your crew, and communicate together straight from your mobile devices. A connected team truly is a more productive one.

Mobile, Cloud-Based Crop Management

Croptracker offers mobile farm management apps for both iOS and Android - after all, growers don’t stay in front of their computers all day! Mobile support means growers can spend less time in their offices and more time in their fields and orchards.

As a cloud-based solution, Croptracker gives farmers and workers real-time dashboard access. If a team member in the back forty inputs information about spray records, crop health, or orchard management, all employees with access have that data at their fingertips instantly.

Whether growers are out in one of the fields, in a storage barn, driving a tractor, or even in town picking up supplies — whenever and wherever data is needed, as long as there's an internet connection, Croptracker is there. Accessing your records and data couldn't be easier.

Cloud based recording also eliminates the headache of storing, sorting, and retrieving physical records. With Croptracker, all your records are stored securely in the cloud and are accessible to users in a few clicks or taps - no matter how old the record and no matter where the user is located. This frees up office space and makes surprise audits and record requests less daunting.

All data stored on Croptracker is safe, secure, and reliable. All Croptracker accounts use SSL-encrypted connections - the same level of security used by online banks.

Our cloud-based system also means that your records and valuable data insights will not be lost or compromised if your computer or smartphone gets lost or broken. Backups occur every hour, are replicated across 3 continents, and are retained for 180 days.

Powerful Reports

In 2006 when Croptracker was in early development and we asked growers what tasks they would most like to streamline, and one answer we heard most often was food safety audits. Today, Croptracker's reports - developed in close consultation with growers and auditors - help users shave days of effort off the auditing process.

Croptracker's easy record-keeping system and over 80 generatable reports makes passing audits easy. On audit day, growers can generate the necessary reports in a few clicks or taps and get back to their daily tasks sooner.

Comprehensive Crop Management

Croptracker is a modular system, that lets growers start small and grows with their organizations, from a simple irrigation tracking system to a full-fledged farm and orchard management platform.

Spray and chemical application records are required by an increasing number of processors and retailers, so it is vital to have these records accurate and easily accessible. Croptracker makes this easy: simply input or schedule spray applications, auto-calculate your tank mix, chemical amounts, and PHI and REI times, and let Croptracker automatically update your chemical inventory based on your applications and purchases. You can even receive notifications when the PHI and REI intervals end, and be warned if you try to schedule a production practice in an area that is not yet safe for entry.

Harvest and yield records are simple with Croptracker, too. Growers can quickly record their harvest and packing statistics as they are completed without leaving the field, orchard, or packhouse.

From block yield reports, inventory tracking, packing and shipping reports, chemical inventory, spray reports, to packaging material inventory—everything is available to view from a real-time dashboard.

Growers work hard, and it is challenging to keep profit margins high. Croptracker helps by harnessing the power of data to make growing produce more efficient, more productive and more profitable.
