Permanent crops are usually trees or other shrub plantings, which are planted in the field for many years (typically more than five consecutive years). Unlike row or vegetable crops which are replanted every year or even multiple times in a calendar year.
I’m sure you have consumed or used your fair share of food products coming from permanent crop orchards, for example:
- Citrus (Orange, Tangerine, Lemon etc.)
Permanent Crop management in AgNote
We specifically designed AgNote with permanent crop characteristics in mind. AgNote will help you to manage important permanent crop details such as the kind of rootstock, the spacing of plants and rows, whether the plant variety is a pollinator, and the percentage of each variety planted in the field.
Here are the main highlights of Permanent Crop management in AgNote:
- Save multiple permanent crop varieties in the field.
- Keep track of planting details like rootstock, variety, spacing of plants and rows, and percentage of the varieties planted in the field.
