For all your cost-per-acre metrics for seed, fertilizer, chemicals, labor, and equipment, crop management software is going to help you quickly and reliably see how your crop and farm is currently performing. Better yet, it can help you make better strategic decisions for the future of your agricultural business.
You can’t control the weather, but you can measure the rain that falls. Indeed, there are new ways to manage those things that are under your control. Crop management software can break down job details for different farm clients. It can break out spray records, harvest yields, and market numbers for each crop. It can handle all your crop, packing, shipping, storage, and shipping/receiving records. With the right software technologies, you can make a more precise order for your chemicals supply, or you can schedule your spray treatment further in advance. You can track pests and growth stage.
Finding and Choosing Crop Management Software
It’s not hard at all to find options for crop management software. Whether you talk to other farmers or you do a simple online search, you’re bound to find at least a few. But how do you know which ones to choose? After all, basic spreadsheet software has been around for a couple decades now, and although some farmers continue to use these older systems, metrics and dashboard reporting come in dozens of different packages.
There is no one right solution that best fits the needs every farmer and agribusiness out there. Looking for something of a comprehensive, but easy-to-scan list of software options? We recommend this list from Capterra as a solid starting point. Some developers focus almost exclusively on crop management software.
