CropMate is a web-based application that helps growers analyse climate and weather information for their location so that they can make informed planning and management decisions at different points during the crop cycle. Although designed primarily for grain producers and associated industries, CropMate could also prove useful for vegetable growers in eastern Australia.
The software can be used to plan when to plant, compare prices of fertilisers, or work out nutritional requirements given available climate and soil information. CropMate™ is divided into 5 modules, which match the 5 stages of the crop cycle – Pre-season planning, sowing, spraying, growing and harvest.
CropMate™ is available online – click HERE to visit the website.
