One challenging thing about row crop data management is that it changes often. Depending on where you farm and crops you grow, your crop information could change several times in a year. For example, in California, where the climate is warm, it’s quite common to plant two crops in the same field every year. That also means that crop data tracking and reporting needs to be done more frequently. There definitely is room on the market for user-friendly row crop management software.
I used to manage over 6,000 acres of row crops in California. And for most of the time I was double cropping, and sometimes even triple cropping. And my routine was such, soon after I finished planting my current crop, I needed to start working on my next season’s plan. At first all my planning data and tracking was done on spreadsheets. And as you can imagine, there were a lot of spreadsheets to maintain. There were times when I was asking myself, is my primary job to manage farm fields or spreadsheets. Since a lot of time was going into keeping the spreadsheets up to date. I’m sure if you are a farmer or farm manager who manages row crops, you can relate.
