Can you be sure that you use up pesticides in your spray store before the crop approval expires? SentinelActive can
help you manage this problem before you get caught out in an inspection.Over 18,000 crop approvals have expired in the past 12
months so it is unlikely that you will be able to keep track of all the expiries without help. SentinelActive will enable a Pesticide Expiry Date Report in GateKeeper,MultiCrop and Agronomist allowing you to identify products nearing their expiry date or those that have expired. It is much cheaper to use up the product when still legal than to pay the considerable expense of an approved contractor.
Linking with GateKeeper and MultiCrop
SentinelActive will help you to manage your pesticide list. On installation SentinelActive will match and link your pesticides to the appropriate Sentinel product. This is how SentinelActive knows which crop approval to use when checking your planned applications.The Active Ingredient and LERAP rating will be automatically added to each matched pesticide and used in traceability and other reports.
SentinelActive carries a searchable archive of SOLA documents which can be viewed and printed. If you grow fruit, vegetable, or salad crops you will almost certainly be using SOLA level approvals. SentinelActive will give you access to the appropriate approval details and allow you to generate and keep the document for your crop assurance records.
SentinelActive includes a Pesticide Interrogator which allows you to query the extensive pesticide library for pesticide products matching your requirements. Searches include;
- Pesticide type
- Active ingredients
- LERAP (non,A or B)
- Marketing level (available, not currently marketed)
- Timing (planned date, application window, minimum clear days to harvest)
- Target crop
- Exact or partial match
- Approval (full, provisional, Sola, expired)
- Growth stage (window to latest growth stage)
SentinelActive will show the percentage dose rate for B LERAP rated products in Work Planning and Agronomist recommendations for any crop, allowing you to make and record appropriate LERAP decisions.
