TracGrounds offers groundskeepers easy-to-use spreadsheets that will make submitting the NYSDEC Applicator/Technician Pesticide Annual Report (Annual Report) much easier. Spreadsheets include lists of applicators, application equipment, customers, restricted purchases, and pesticide and fertilizer applications. This information is directly linked to the Annual Report and other required DEC forms.
TracGrounds allows you to personalize your Trac software to your specific needs. Enter specific areas of your grounds, (e.g. baseball field, side lawn, etc.) as well as square footage and grass types and the information will be available as drop-down lists on other Trac spreadsheets.
TracGrounds’s ChemHelp worksheet comes with an extensive list of turfgrass products (product name, EPA registration number and active ingredients) to help you complete the ChemTable, a list of your chemical inventory, which not only helps you populate spray information, but also helps keep track of costs.
Good records enhance your IPM strategy and make your required reports easy to generate. The detailed collected information aids in more effective and efficient use of labor, pesticides and fertilizers, as well as tracking product re-entry times and your bottom line.
Four reports can be generated in TracGrounds:
- Applicator/Technician Pesticide Annual Report (Applicator Report-26)
- List of Commercial Applicators and Technicians (Applicators-26a)
- Record Keeping Information (Recordkeeping-26)
- Pesticide Application Record Keeping Form for Private Applicators (PrivApp Record).
