Trac Software Enhances Spray Record-keeping and Traceability
Trac Software, an Excel-based record-keeping and reporting software program, enables easy maintenance and reporting of accurate crop protection records that are, 1) vital to a farmer’s market edge, when increasingly competitive global markets demand detailed pesticide records and traceability, and 2) critical to IPM practices. In 2007 a total of 291 Trac CDs were distributed. Trac Software 2007 updates for fruit crops included revisions to the pesticide data, Trac Software Manual, and Getting Started Guide and creation of an EcoApple report form. Trac Software development for turfgrass neared completion (see separate report by Grant et al.) A Trac survey of 253 recipients was completed (see separate report).
