Continuous supply of high quality raw materials is of the greatest importance for efficient processing of crops to a finished endproduct. Crop and field data are important for food safety and traceability reasons. The use of crop information dashboards make it possible to access current crop and field data of all suppliers. And by using smart modules raw material supply can be optimized during the growing season.
Producers or suppliers of crop protection and seeds like their products being used in the field properly and in the most sustainable way. Digital support can assist the advisor to give the customer the proper crop treatment advice at the right time. Modules are developed for both the grower and advisor.
