Need Advanced Licensing and Certification for Ag? We’ve Got You Covered

by | Updated May 10, 2018 | Agriculture, Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations

Levridge, Stoneridge Software’s newly formed ISV subsidiary, has been actively building software for agricultural businesses since the beginning of the year. Over the next 18 months, we’ll be rolling out several modules containing functionality built on top of Microsoft Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations. In a series of blogs, I will give you a preview of what you can expect to see in these ag-related modules. In this first post, I will start with some of the functionality contained in the module for Advanced Licensing and Certifications for ag.

The purpose of Levridge’s Advanced Licensing and Certification for a module is to provide storage of state and federally required certifications for employees, vendors, and customers. In addition to storing the certifications, the Levridge module contains the ability to verify required certifications exist on customer accounts before sales to those customers/growers are completed. On employees, Levridge prevents employees from performing operations they are not currently in compliance to complete.

You might be wondering how these certifications apply specifically to agriculture. Three examples of scenarios the Advanced Licensing and Certification module is designed to handle are:

1) Pesticides

Restricted use pesticides require a valid private or commercial applicators license before they can be purchased or handled. For ag retailers, this means any person that applies any pesticide for profit or hire is required to have a commercial applicators license of a class commensurate with the work required. Levridge can store the data off of the applicator license and when a work order is issued it ensures that an applicator, hauler, or handler is properly licensed to perform the tasks assigned to them. Additionally, Levridge can store grower applicator licenses and verify they exist and have not expired prior to transferring restricted use pesticides to that grower.

2) Feed

Several feed items require a prescription from a licensed veterinarian for a specific use, in a specific time frame, and with a specified rate and in some cases, the total cumulative amount needs to be tracked. Levridge gives ag retailers the ability to store these veterinary feed directives (VFDs) and track consumption against them.

3) Seed

Seed companies that have developed genetically modified seed traits require growers to sign a licensing agreement before they are legally allowed to purchase and raise seed with that specific trait. Ag retailers are required to verify that a potential client has that license in place before they release that seed to them. Also, ag retailers are required to report how many units of those varieties each grower buys in a given year. Levridge is able to store and track those numbers and raise warning flags when an agreement needs to be signed before the seed is delivered.

Those are just a few of the scenarios Levridge’s Advanced Licensing and Certification is designed to tackle and this module is just one of many we will be building. In upcoming weeks, look for articles on Agronomy, Agronomy Work Order Management, Splits and Prepayments, Blending, Patronage and many more.
