“The time savings have been huge,” says Young. “The less
time we spend doing administrative paperwork, the more
time we can dedicate to farming each vineyard row precisely.
It’s all about using the latest technology to elevate quality of
the grapes.”
Last year during grape harvest, Young and Grande used
AgCode on their iPads for collecting and disseminating
information, including daily sugar measurements, crop
estimates, block-by-block harvesting reports and varietal
harvesting summaries. Many of these same tasks were
tackled using AgCode during the November olive harvest.
But harvest isn’t the only time they rely on AgCode. During
the growing season, they are able to process work orders for
a wide variety of everyday tasks, such as cover-crop planting,
grapevine leafing, pruning and thinning. They can also track
and schedule equipment maintenance from anywhere on
their iPads.

Young and Grande are able to view soil mapping
cartographic maps while standing in the vineyard, allowing
them to overlay what they are physically viewing on the
vine. They can compare the color and growth pattern of the
canopy with the soil analysis diversity clearly visible on the
maps displayed on their iPad screens.
Equally as practical, it’s also helpful with mundane office
tasks. Payroll that used to take four hours can now be zipped
through in 20 minutes using the iPad. Emails can be answered
anywhere—with the data needed right at their fingertips.
Not being chained to a desk or having to scoot across the
estate means Young and Grande can focus more on precision
farming, making technology pay off in ways some never
dreamed imaginable.
