Gatekeeper
In 2013, a number of the Dairygold crop walking team successfully trialed the crop management software programme, Gatekeeper (from Farmade Management Systems) and this software has now been rolled out to our full crop walking team.

The software has a number of benefits for you, the grower:
• Recommendations sent directly to your local branch so you can collect both your recommendation and crop protection products required with little or no delay.
• Complete cross compliance record including the new Integrated Pest Management requirements (you only need to fill in the LPIS number of the field and details of the day sprayed).
• Peace of mind knowing details of all your recommendations are backed up securely and can be re-printed or emailed to you on demand.
