AGNote: Field splitting is a useful feature for vegetable growers. Since AgNote joined Western Growers in early 2022, it has had an opportunity to learn more about farm management software requirements for vegetable growers. One of the company’s learnings is it has discovered that vegetable growers often plant multiple crops and varieties in the same field. Recently, AgNote added a Produce Crop management area in the AgNote offering so that farmers can easily add multiple crops or varieties in one field.

For almost a year, Orange County Produce in Irvine, Calif., has been growing cabbage, watermelon, zucchini and some celery for the nearby Second Harvest Food Bank on a contract basis in much the same way they would for a processor or a retailer.

“It’s the same concept,” said A.G. Kawamura, who is a partner in the growing-shipping operation, along with his brother, Matt. “In fact, we signed a standard grower contract that is very similar to the one we have with a processor.”
