Sectormentor Reports

Yield Predictor

Create yield predictions for each block based on flower or bunch counts to support top management decisions. Visualise how your yield predictions progress as the season develops.

Phenology Report

Explore key dates each season in different blocks to build up a clear picture of the phenology of your vines. Easily compare these dates and phenology patterns year on year.

Vine Health Indicator

Easily observe trends in cane weights, vigour, short shoots & crop load to monitor vineyard health. Visualise pruning weight trends to support your management & identify potential issues early on.

Harvest Tracker

Watch your yield is evolving as you harvest, and see how that compares to your predicted yields in real time. Compare yield/hectare (or acre) across each of your block.

Ripeness Indicator

Enable better decisions in real time – immediately visualise how each block is ripening in the run up to harvest. Quickly compare how each block ripened in past years, supporting the estimation of harvest dates across your site.

Work Report

See how much time is being spent on different jobs around the vineyard. You can filter results by variety, clone, block, or rootstock, as well as seeing how long a task took per hectare or per vine.

Weather Data

Upload your weather station data to Sectormentor, so you can visualise your GDD alongside key phenological dates. Get auto-integration for weather data from Sencrop or Trak365 stations.
