Systematic Farm Management With Ease

Farm Plot List, Mobile App Screen

 

Everything begins with defining the farm plots or farm fields. Click on the “New” button to create a new farm plot. One farm can have many fields. A single farm plot shows what was planted and when, the number of plants, and a unique identifier. If livestock is also managed, another farm plot can show what animal species and the number of heads use that specific land area. One field can only have one product (a plant or an animal) associated. A farmer can then click on “Farm Activities” to view the progress of activities for every farm plot across the growing season. The unique identifier is automatically tied to all activities that will have been carried out to manage the specific field and product (patent pending method).

 

When the harvest is ready for shipment to the buyer, the farmer can click on the “Label” button to prepare and print product labels. The farmer can attach the labels to the product boxes. Because the label is generated at the time of creating the farm plot, the farmer’s buyer can receive a copy of the product label in advance. In this way, the buyer will be able to check on the growth and health of the crop from date of planting to date of harvest. The buyer can be kept informed and thus can provide guidance when an issue arises.

Product Label Example, Minimum Text Layout

 

The software generates a unique product label for each farm plot. The downloadable document presents two layouts. One layout shows the QR code symbol along with the unique identifier and the name of the farm. Another layout provides more details to show the product, country, and specific location. If privacy is necessary, the farmer can download and use just the QR code symbol image. The product can still be tracked by scanning the QR code.

 

Product Label Example, Detailed Description Layout
Traceability Mobile App Main Screen

 

If a consumer wants to find out where a specific fruit or vegetable was grown, she can scan the product label or enter the unique identifier in the OASIS Traceability Edition mobile app. Basic information about the farm plot or farm field will display. Note that the Traceability Edition is a limited version for the general public.

 

The farmer can use the full version mobile app to view key statistics about the product’s growth, health, quality, and management. This customized version can be provided to the farmer’s buyers, partners, and extension agents. The full version is called the OASIS Agriculture Product History.
