Accounting For Non-GMO and Organic Crops Certified by USDA

For acquiring a USDA Organic certificate, farmers need to follow strict standards of field and crop cultivation. First of all, it is the absence of genetically modified organisms in crops and feeds that can adversely affect human health and the environment.

To control the absence of GMOs, it is essential to record crops at all stages of production, from seed selection to crop storage and transportation. Special crop software is used in this case for creating a special electronic field map, the determination of their actual boundaries and areas of the treated areas, generation of yield maps, maintenance of crop statistics, and so on. 

Also, with its help, you can make an analysis of the presence of GMOs and document the results.
