N2N Global recently launched its new farm management and commodity forecast system. N2N Global claims to be the leading innovator in agri-business software including traceability, quality and food safety compliance software. N2N Global has been known for its leading edge agri-ERP solution known as Knowledge integrated Software Suite (KiSS).

Now the Florida-based company has a new system allowing farmers to consolidate all farm data and manage profit and loss to the acre or lot.

"The knowledge integrated software system we call KiSS allows clients to create profit and loss statements down to the acre, by plant cycle, or plant date. Tracking and reporting can be done by labor, farm materials, chemicals, machinery, and more scaleable from single ranch owners to considerable farm operations facilities," explained Angela Nardone, a principal of the company. "These reports may be generated in summary or detail based on user authority and business requirements."

Labor typically comprises 50 percent of the total cost of farm expenses and managing labor is an important issue for all growers, Nardone noted. With KiSS's Farm Management module, growers can track data by employee, by data function, and by field farm role and responsibility - harvesting, spraying, planting, etc., Nardone explained.

Harvest Planning also delivers important information to feed into sales and production activities, she added. When used with the KiSS Sales & Operations module, users are able to track receiving bins from the field through to processing and packaging for purposes of traceability and compliance.

Trace back may occur based upon materials utilized on the crop. Typical client data allows for lot, grower, and commodity-based trace back. When used in conjunction with the KiSS Sales & Operations module, trace forward is available down the supply chain by truckload and sales order.

"With Farm Management's ‘Commodity Forecast System’ growers are able to plan by commodity, plant date, and estimated harvest dates which can then be categorized by size and delivery locations," Nardone said.

"These parameters vary by commodity-based metrics. Whether growers deliver by rattoons, bins, tons, or pounds, the KiSS Farm Management module will accommodate your commodity."

The KiSS Farm Management module allows growers to accurately record receipt and usage by farm (grower and entity) and commodity. This can be used for both traceability and materials management due to the costly nature of chemicals application."
