icropIf you have driven on a California highway recently you may have noticed an occasional tomato heap, scattered bell peppers or bunch of celery on the roadside. Harvest crews are busy bringing in crops throughout the state and truck traffic is backed up at weigh scales and processing facilities.

To ease the paperwork burden, Cogent3D, Inc. has announced the availability of a pre-configured Food Safety module for the iCropTrak iPad and iPhone software. iCropTrak subscribers can now document Food Safety inspections at the farm field using the Primus Labs Pre-Harvest Block Inspection and other protocols. The inspection data is automatically tagged with the inspector credentials and the precise GPS coordinates for the location of the inspection. “iCropTrak disqualifies any doubt that an inspection was filled out from a shady parking lot rather than at the farm field”, explained Rob Wood of Cogent3D, Inc.. iCropTrak provides users with instant visual feedback through its map based interface and managers can track inspection activities remotely and see exactly where inspectors are working and what fields have been inspected. The Food Safety module is being offered at no charge to new subscribers who sign up for iCropTrak before September 30th, 2013.
