G.M. Arnold & Son Pty Ltd
With over 90 ha of citrus it is critical that we have a system in place to accurately track the bins picked and who picked them.
The GrowData Harvest App has made this process so much easier. Although it is very intuitive I was worried about the contractors taking up the system but they have taken to it like ducks to water.
We can manage team picking and assign a quality description to each bin as well as a percentage full. And we can record the row where the bin was picked
Reports on bins picked per block, bins picked by contractor & bins picked by individual pickers are available at the touch of a button.
At any time of the day I can track progress via my mobile phone and arguments with pickers about the number of bins picked has virtually been eliminated.
The app will assign a cost per bin picking for both paid by hour and paid by bin (the program calculates an average cost per bin when pickers are paid by the hour.
