Capturing Pre Harvest Assessment #

Please Note:

  • Only orchards that are within 10 days of harvest will appear in the list of orchards.
  • If you want to capture the results because you are about to harvest that orchard, then you will need to change the harvest date.
  • Every night the system calculates which orchards are within 10 days from harvest and then changes the status which allows them to be selected so that the results of the assessment can be captured.
  • Once the data has been captured for an orchard then that orchard no longer appears in the list. This is to prevent overwriting the pre-harvest assessment data.
  • Select Pre Harvest Assessment.

Figure 9-Pre Harvest Assessment

  • Type in PUC and Click on Get Results.
