At this free workshop, we will provide hands-on training so that you can learn to use the newest version of CropManage which has been updated to be more compatible for in-field use by farm staff.
CropManage is now available in Spanish. Spanish interpretation will be available at the workshop.
Central Coast Crops currently supported by CropManage include strawberry, head, romaine, leaf, and baby lettuce, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cauliflower, cabbage, celery, cilantro, mizuna, bell peppers, raspberry, spinach, and tomato.
What to bring: This is a participatory workshop. Please bring a tablet or laptop computer so that you can follow along and participate in the exercises. If you do not have an account for using CropManage, please set up a free account before the workshop at the website: cropmanage.ucanr.edu.
