Bowman Farms, Modesto, California is a well established family business. Clinton Bowman, President of Bowman Custom Farming, uses a TracMap in-cab GPS display unit in his Flory almond harvester to communicate jobs clearly to his drivers. Managing all his jobs in TracMap Online, Clinton has full visibility of queued, live and completed jobs.
“What has been great is the ability to monitor job progression on the live tracking screen, and plan accordingly,” Clinton explains.
“Thanks to TracMap, we can clearly see how effective a new chemical was on increasing yield, which allows us to determine which treatments work and which don’t.”

Looking forward to having a complete yield data set at the end of harvest so he can compare yields across his various blocks, Clinton adds, “We’re very excited about analyzing the data we have collected from TracMap.”
Based on the data collected by TracMap and analyzed by Bowman Custom Farming, Clinton can get the clarity he needs to determine whether a new spray treatment was effective. The TracMap data gives him individual down row weights that he uses to compare yields.
