As a certified organic hop producer, Ron Brennan understands the importance of keeping detailed records. That's why the owner of Old 4th Hop Yard is developing Hop Logger: a mobile app designed to efficiently track field activities. Instead of using pen and paper, Brennan can now use his smartphone to collect data directly from the field. Whether it's storing essential records for an upcoming inspection, logging soil and water test results, uploading photos from the field or analyzing historical data to better plan for the upcoming season, the time-saving app is a simple, all-in-one data depository. Designed for all producers, regardless of size, Hop Logger may soon become as commonplace in the hop yard as coir twine and bale bags.
