TWO updated computer programs which aim to ease complex record keeping demanded by protocol and assurance schemes have been launched.

MultiCrop 2 provides traceability and accountability across a range of arable, salad and vegetable crops with the minimum of inputting, says East Sussex-based Farmade Management Systems.

Field Plan 2, from Cambs distributor &#42 L Hutchinson, is designed for use by company agronomists. It provides complete field and crop histories, including pesticide use, buffer zones, washout requirements, harvest intervals, maximum residue levels and sprayer servicing, says the company.
