iCropTrak Simplifies Farm Planning
The latest release of iCropTrak, available in the App Store for Apple iPad tablet devices, delivers an easy to use Farm Plan data management interface for documenting expected seasonal farming operations. Farm Plan content can be assembled in chronological sequence and viewed in a calendar format on a field by field basis for portions of a season or for an annual crop cycle. Plans can be duplicated and applied to subsequent seasons allowing users to easily propagate optimal practices. The user customizable interface gives farming company’s the opportunity to establish re-usable templates and also delivers the framework necessary to develop and refine detailed activity based costing budgets. The patent pending interface uses the concept of a virtual binder to let users add digital pages to the plan and easily arrange them.
Farm Plan documentation is regarded as a continuous improvement and sustainability best practice and can be used to keep farming operations on track throughout the season. The iCropTrak interface provides capabilities to include operations budget information that can be combined with the resource scheduling and tracking features of iCropTrak to give real-time budget variance reporting capabilities. Updates to next year’s plan can be made in the field today while assessing positive or negative outcomes of the current planned and actual operations.
