Labor typically comprises 50% of the total cost of farm expenses and managing labor is an important issue for all growers, Nardone says.
Orlando, FL (PRWEB) December 23, 2011
N2N Global is pleased to announce the launch of its new farm management and commodity forecast system. The revolutionary new system allows farmers to consolidate all farm data and manage profit and loss to the acre or lot, said Angela Nardone. Nardone’s Florida based company provides operations compliance, and food safety solutions for food companies, which helps ensure the world’s food supply operates in an efficient and effective manner, resulting in a higher quality of food in the supply chain. Nardone works with restaurants, retailers, distributors, packers and processors around the world.
“The knowledge integrated software system we call KiSS allows clients to create Profit & Loss statements down to the acre, by plant cycle, or plant date. Tracking and reporting can be done by labor, farm materials, chemicals, machinery, and more scaleable from single ranch owners to considerable farm operations facilities,” said Nardone. “These reports may be generated in summary or detail based on user authority and business requirements.”
Labor typically comprises 50% of the total cost of farm expenses and managing labor is an important issue for all growers, Nardone says. With KiSS’s Farm Management module, growers can track data by employee, by data function, and by field farm role & responsibility - harvesting, spraying, planting, etc., Nardone explained.
Harvest Planning also delivers important information to feed into sales & production activities, she added. When used with the KiSS Sales & Operations module, users are able to track receiving bins from the field through to processing and packaging for purposes of traceability and compliance. Trace back may occur based upon materials utilized on the crop. Typical client data allows for lot, grower, and commodity-based trace back. When used in conjunction with the KiSS Sales & Operations module, trace forward is available down the supply chain by truckload and sales order.
“With Farm Management’s “Commodity Forecast System” growers are able to plan by commodity, plant date, and estimated harvest dates which can then be categorized by size and delivery locations,” Nardone said. “These parameters vary by commodity-based metrics. Whether growers deliver by rattoons, bins, tons, or pounds, the KiSS Farm Management module will accommodate your commodity.”
The KiSS Farm Management module allows growers to accurately record receipt and usage by farm (grower and entity) and commodity. This can be used for both traceability and materials management due to the costly nature of chemicals application.”
