Based on the experience of colleagues, I can say that next year we will save between 10 and 15% on the harvest and that we will also be able to work much more transparently.

The period before the purchase of the information system was turbulent. High costs in difficult times meant that certain investments were delayed or cancelled in the past. For example, the aging and defective path registration system was not replaced; instead growers switched back to old-fashioned manual labour.
