Software safety

HEALTH and safety recording features in Farmades MultiCrop 2 software.

An automatic prompt ensures users enter the appropriate information and data on to daily work sheets, specifying precautions for handling, use of protective clothing or safety equipment.

Such operator comments are complemented by a list of sprays within the program, detailing chemical make up, harvest interval, minimum residue levels, label recommendations and warnings. The software, which costs £800, can help growers meet health and safety obligations, says Farmade. &#42
