Provide the modern business-minded farmer with software that is easy to implement and use, resulting in production planning and inventory control activities that are more effective.
We understand that in order to be successful using a computer planning system, the software must provide an intuitive and practical model of the operation to be managed. We believe we have achieved this goal as outlined below.
Our Model – Milestone Growing Steps
We have implemented three Milestone processes:
- Greenhouse Tray Start with transfer to Field for Growing & Harvest
- Direct Seed Start with Field Growing & Harvest
- Greenhouse Tray Start with Greenhouse Growing & Harvest, our hydroponics solution.
Milestones are control points for resource allocation planning, activity lists and progress feedback.
We started by creating the Growing Template, which is where Product (Crop) production data is housed. Then, with in the Growing Template, we organize your data in a logical way so that it is easy to find and manage. The data is grouped into logical categories and the groups are visible only when needed.
We defined three new terms which reflect the Methods that farmers execute when planning and
managing their process. By defining the Methods, it is possible for us to program functionality targeting
- Planting Methods
- Growing Methods
- Harvest Methods
