What is master data?
You and your co-workers share the same lists of sites and locations, teams, employees, activities, crops, products, and boxes. We call those lists "master data". Parts of the master data is used for both the Labour Inisght application as the Crop Insight application.
The master data is managed in the Priva cloud and synchronized from the cloud to the Crop Insight registration App. Master data is necessary to be able to do a crop registrations.
Add and edit master data
As a user, you must have Crop Manager rights to be able to add or edit the master data for Crop Insight.
With the master data you actually configure your company layout. For Crop Inisght it is important to know which locations you have, which crops are goring on these locations and which characteristics you want to track for each crop.
Site and Locations
With Sites and Locations, you are able to create one or multiple sites. For each site, one or multiple (sub) locations (fields) can be configured.
Make sure to add the essentials. On the overview page, you can see how many items you have of each master data category and whether you miss any information preventing proper registrations.
Under "Products" you can add the product that your crop(s) are producing. Like ‘strawberry’ or ‘blueberry’. Products are used to combine and filter the same products in a report view.
Under "Crops" you can add the crops which are growing on your location (field).
You have to indicate: Name; Time when the crop is ‘active’; Whether production registration is done per employee or per team; the location where the crop is grown; product to which the crop belongs; and the surface area covered by the crop. For Crop Insight you also have to indicate which Characteristic set you want to use for this crop.
Under "Characteristics" you can add and manage the Characteristics you are interested in for registration on crop level. Characteristics you can think of are 'Water usage', 'Drain amount', Length growth, 'Number of flowers', 'Rainfall', 'Spider mite' and so on. The number of characteristics you want to register is not limited.
Under "Characteristic sets" you can add and manage the Characteristic sets. This means that you are able to assign all your water related characteristics to a set called (as example) 'water registrations'. When using the Crop Insight registration app, you will be able to select the crop you are doing your registrations for and the characteristic set(s). So when doing your 'water registrations' the water related characteristics are displayed.
