Who we are
Were growers just like you. This logbook was built by growers for growers. We've been in the greenhouse business since 1983 and have seen numerous changes that have made it necessary to develop this E-Logbook application. It didn't use to be required to log pesticide applications and was only done in a spiral bound notebook that always got wet and became illegible. Now it's not only required by some states D.E.Q. but has also become the only way to repeat a crops quality from year to year. Being growers has put us in a unique position to develop this logbook that not only meets our needs but yours to.
Where here to help you eliminate the time consuming hand writing of pesticide applications. Were here to get you access to those applications to make sound decisions that are now required in the low profit margins of today's greenhouse business environment. Quick logging with little effort means more time to do other task. Access to information at any time from a device you have in your pocket is very valuable.
We hope you look around and take the sample logbook for a test spin to see what you have been missing from your logbook and could be getting from your applications. Being informed gives piece of mind and gives more time to make smarter growing decisionsRead More
A bit of history
The pest logbook was developed from a need to have access to applications and all associated data with little effort. The first versions were done in Excel with a lot of back end support from VBA code to provide a robust E-logbook application. These early versions provided all the necessary data and ease of logging but, with the number of simultaneous users only being one in Excel, it had a major draw back. Excel also kept the logbook stuck on, at the very least, a small laptop computer.
We used the Excel version for 3 years before the time finally arrived that the smart phone and other mobile devices made it feasible to build an online application. So in the fall of 2012 we set out to build a logbook that could be accessed just as easily from a pc with a 24 inch monitor down to an Iphone and still be readable. The actual logging of the applications is built on what's called an responsive design. This type of design will automatically adjust it's look to what's best for the screen size it's being viewed on. This keeps the pinching and scrolling during application entry to a minimum allowing users with the smallest screens large legible inputs.
Most of the reports still require pinching and scrolling on smaller devices because of the large amount of data associated with pesticide applications. The filtering and column drop feature allows viewers to slim down the amount of data being viewed with little effort so that information can be retrieved on all screen sizes with just a few taps of the fingers.Read More
