Benefits to Associations & Growers
Currently, Croptracker is proud to work with the Apple Growers of New Brunswick, Berry Growers of Ontario, Ontario Apple Growers Association, and the Ontario Tender Fruit Producers. Collaborating with association members, it constantly augments the software to fit the dynamic needs of its diverse membership body and help meet each association’s goals.
Croptracker’s benefits to its members are numerous. In the day-to-day, the software frees growers from the burdens of paperwork, manual calculations and scheduling, and record-keeping; allowing them to spend more time in the fields or orchards and less time in their offices. From a long-term perspective, Croptracker’s suite of over 50 reports create a “bird’s eye view” of the operation that enhances growers’ decision-making ability, allows them to identify trends and trend deviances, and lets them respond to issues before they become costly problems.
Finally, Croptracker not only contributes to safe food production but also helps individual growers fulfill retailers’ increasingly demanding traceability requirements. This allows them access to new and lucrative market opportunities.
