You may want to create an electronic records retention system to keep track of pest and nutritional sprays, production work orders, worker protection standards, and material safety data sheets. Or you may want to automate your harvest ticketing process by capturing the ticket in the field or on the citrus harvesting goat. What about barcoding tickets with the contract number and supplier’s name?
You’ve got even more options. Roll out electronic timekeeping for contracted harvesting crews. Or streamline the payroll by keeping electronic records.
Don’t let the learning curve stand in your way. We’re offering free Lunch N Learn sessions for growers, harvesters, and crop caretakers. Our goal? To educate the industry about new technological options, and the benefits of digital technology in overcoming challenges in the agriculture industry.
Choose either the July 17 or July 24 session focusing on electronics recordkeeping for chemical compliance management. The focus is on citrus caretaking. The meetings will run from 11:45 a.m. to 1 p.m. at The Vault, Downstairs Conference Room, 150 Third Street, SW, Winter Haven. Reserve a place by emailing me at or by calling (863) 297-9293 Ext. 200.  If you’d like to know more, send me an email or call me on my cell at (863) 224-0299.
