TRAC software now available as FREE download

This post is from From Bob Barthel of Barthel Fruit Farm in Mequon:
Cornell has been supporting the TRAC series of Excel based pesticide record keeping spreadsheets. I’ve used TRAC Apple and TRAC Berry in prior years. It works and is a valuable tool. This year, they are not charging for it! Following is a description and URL from UMASS Healthy Fruit Newsletter…
TRAC software now available as FREE download
The New York State Integrated Pest Management’s pesticide record-keeping software — TRAC — is now available as a free download. TRAC requires Microsoft Excel, but it has a lot of built-in information that makes tracking pesticide applications and preparing reports (including central posting for the Worker Protection Standard) much easier and more efficient. The only caveat is it only has built-in pesticide information (Chem Table) for products registered in New York, however, you can add chemicals to it manually. There are versions for apples, pears, stone fruit (peach, nectarine, plum), cherries, grapes, and berries.
Make sure you download the Manual and read the directions too! Note that if you are running the latest version of Office for Mac (2008), TRAC will not work, because Microsoft disabled Visual Basic Application macros in the newest versions of Office for Mac. (Bad Microsoft!)
