FieldTrace™ is a secure web-based Crop Management System and an integral part of Hensall’s Quality Assurance System.

The FieldTrace database is hosted in a secure cloud environment and accessed using either the browser-based web application for Internet Explorer or the mobile app available for iOS and Android devices.

FieldTrace is available for use by all Hensall Co-op customers at no charge. If you need assistance, call any Hensall Co-op location or contact Walt Vermunt at wvermunt@hdc.on.ca or phone 1-800-262-3511 ext. 322 for specific inquiries.


FieldTrace allows Food Producers to link both contracted and commercial crops to their fields in order to record the good stewardship practices that are being used.    Drop-down menus assist the user in entering details of fertilizer and crop protection products.    In addition to the database functions, geo-referenced mapping capabilities are provided.   Producers using the system will have the advantage of building historical data while fulfilling the requirements of the IP Food Grade Soybean and Dry Bean contract traceability.    Information for non-contracted crops can be recorded so that FieldTrace can be used as your comprehensive crop record management system.
