Reach the best OGR

Exclusive Orchard Management System

Kiwifruit orchard owners’ main concern is the lack of tools to track the past, current and future situation of their orchards. We, as orchard management and maintenance providers, on the other hand, needed the right tools to track our staff performance and monitor activities on all orchards we work on.

To solve this problem, we have developed our own customised Orchard Management System Solution. Through our software, both we and our clients are able to check in real time which tasks are being done at the orchard, who are the managers involved and which team is working on each orchard block. Additionally, we have a clearer view of daily expenses, hours worked, timesheets, and much more. All 100% designed to attend the kiwifruit industry needs in New Zealand.

If you are interested in an Orchard Management System to help you manage your orchard and have a full picture of the current scenario, you can contact our team today!

What is orchard management?

Orchard management is all work involved to ensure orchards produce the maximum amount of fruits as possible, considering the hectares available for the plants to grow, the plants’ ages, canopy / vines quality, and pest control management. In other words, orchard management ensures all plants in an orchard grow healthy and the production yield reached its maximum capacity.

Orchard managers also ensure orchard/canopy maintenance work is done on time by high-skilled work-force, to avoid damage to the plants and their vines, what would negatively impact the OGR (Orchard Gate Return).

What is OGR (Orchard Gate Return)?

OGR (Orchard Gate Return) is a standard industry metric to determine the orchard revenue after harvest. A profitable orchard has to consider all production costs involved, from planting and development to harvest, transporting, packing and exporting. OGR is the return after deducting all these costs.
