Mother plant & Cuttings rooting
The management of mother plants and their planned cutting production can be complex, due to the many factors that can influence this. Simple management of the crops and keeping an overview of all abnormalities during cuttings production is crucial, to be able to realize reliable planning and implementation. The main components for mother plant and cuttings rooting are:
- Mother plant management: coefficients, growth curve, locations.
- Unrooted cutting: cutting planning, flush percentage, track & trace.
- Cuttings rooting: order-driven, activity management, cultivation schedule.
- Nursery management: space, labor and machine planning.
Stock management of cold storage
The processing speed simplicity of the production results is critical. This often involves a high workload. The production must be placed in the cold store with the correct labels as soon as possible.
Stocks in the cold store must be carefully managed. Likewise, the freshness of the cuttings will have to be monitored, to make sure the correct freshness can be assigned to orders. In Agriware, the employee who assigns cuttings to orders always has insight into the availability, date of picking, origin and location of the cuttings.
Surplus and shortage of unrooted cutting
At many propagation companies, the management of sales forecasts, customer contracts and actual sales orders is an integral part of drawing up the production plan and updating it during cultivation.
Efficient management of the potential surplus and shortage of cuttings is crucial, to be able to make commitments to customer orders and manage the production locations.
