FieldTrace allows Food Producers to link both contracted and commercial crops to their fields to record the good stewardship practices being used. Drop-down menus assist the user in entering details of fertilizer and crop protection products. In addition to the database functions, geo-referenced mapping capabilities are provided. Producers using the system will have the advantage of building historical data while fulfilling the requirements of the IP Food Grade Soybean and Dry Bean contract traceability. Information for non-contracted crops can be recorded so FieldTrace can be used as your comprehensive crop record management system.
The FieldTrace database is hosted in a secure cloud environment which is accessed through both web browser and mobile software applications. Watch the video on the Hensall Co-op FieldTrace page to take a screen tour of the FieldTrace desktop version.
