PAM - Solutions for horticulture
Looking for a practical, simple to use but sophisticated suite of software for your horticultural (orchards, olive groves, nut tree plantations, market gardens, etc.) management? PAM Ultracrop and PocketPAM – the complete suite for horticultural managers.
Fairport has been working with the Australian horticulture industry since the early 1990’s when we developed a system for a large wildflower operation. Subsequently this program, Horris (Horticultural Records and Information System) was used by various vineyard managers, market gardeners, strawberry plantations, orchardists and the South Australian horticultural and viticultural research stations at Loxton, Nuriootpa and Lenswood.
During the late 1990’s we incorporated the horticultural specific features of Horris into our PAM Ultracrop software. PAM Ultracrop is now the product of choice of many growers across Australia, from the warm tropics of Kununurra, Katherine and Darwin, to chilly south of Tasmania.
