Trac Software for Fruit: 2009 Report
Project Leader: J. Carroll, NYS IPM
Cooperator: C. TenEyck, NYS IPM; et.al.
Abstract: Trac software, Excel-based record-keeping and reporting programs, enable easy maintenance and reporting of accurate crop protection records that are,
1) vital to a farmer's market edge, when global markets demand pesticide traceability, and
2) fundamental to IPM practices. The 2009 versions of Trac software for fruit were again made available online for free.
This year, 518 Trac software files were downloaded by 300 people. The 2009 upgrades included revisions to the pesticide ChemTable, the Trac Software Manual, creation of three new report forms, and improved automatic report entries. When asked, 98% of farmers using Trac say they will continue using it for their record-keeping and reporting needs.
