7 Ways Trial Tracker Software Improves Efficiency in Greenhouse Plant Trials

I have visited many commercial greenhouses and each grower seems to have their own unique methods of recording data for plant trials. More often than not, trial notes are scribbled onto a clipboard, which oftentimes get wet and dirty from the work environment, or misplaced altogether. This was actually the reason we created Trial Tracker in the first place – we knew that in this age of advanced smartphones and connectivity, there had to be a better way to organize, sort, and share all of this information. Now that top growers and breeders are using Trial Tracker greenhouse software and loving it, we thought we'd put together a list of how it can benefit you. Here are 7 reasons to start using Trial Tracker in your greenhouse today.

Trade the Clipboard for a Smartphone

The traditional way to track any information in the greenhouse is the clipboard. Manual notes are recorded on paper, and then are transferred into digital form. From there, the information might be emailed, or end up in a folder on your desktop which never gets looked at. Crop Tracker software was designed to close the gap between traditional field reporting using a clipboard, and manual data entry. It is very inefficient to log all information on paper and then transfer it to digital after the fact. Sometimes this data doesn't make it to the digital stage, and if it does, it does not end up in the correct people's hands. Most greenhouses have crop care plans or schedules. These plans and schedules are still on paper or added to the notes section of a smart phone. The only way to verify that any of these tasks have been completed is to manually inspect the crop which takes valuable time. Utilizing the ET Grow mobile application will give you full access to the Crop Tracker module. Crop Tracker will eliminate the need for the traditional clipboard and cut out the second step of making the notes digital. Crop Tracker will allow you to record all of this information at once right from your smart phone. Eight great benefits of Crop Tracker can be found below.
