Description:This is a set of databases used to record bin weights by crew, block and variety for a wine grape vineyard hand harvest operation. The Crew #, Tractor Driver and respective Bin Tares are entered into the "Harvest Crews" database. The "Ranch1" database is used to record the Block Number (field number), Acres, Variety, Vine Count and other useful vineyard information. The "Harvest Weights' database allows the user to select the Tractor Driver through a database popup. This also imports the Crew # and Bin Tares pertaining to that crew. The user also selects the Block # through a database popup which also imports the Variety and Acres respective to that block. The Bin Weights are recorded respective to the Tare Weights (Bin#1=Tare#1). If there is no Bin Weight entered the database ignores the Tare Weight for that bin. The database also calculates a running total of the net weights as they are entered. This can be helpful in determining how to load a delivery truck.
Has Data:Yes
Has Forms:No
Filters:Useful Filters for the "Harvest Weights" database, consist of filtering for yield by block, yield by crew (this is especially useful if the crew is being paid by piece rate and want to know what they yielded for the day) and yield by variety.
Sorting:Sorting by block, variety or crew are just some of the useful sorting methods
Comments:Contains "Dummy Data". This Database is set up to make a great summary report when exported to Excel, enabling the user to configure the data in a variety of useful reports. Very helpful in a vineyard management business or a small operation alike

11/21/2000 Hydraulic Cylinder Calculator [Engineering]
This database was designed to calculate the size and performance of a hydraulic cylinder. The user inputs the hydraulic system parameters and the database computes the force exerted by the cylinder. It will also calculate the velocity in inches per minute, or the gallons per minute of fluid required to move the rod, given a specific velocity.

11/16/2000 Dive Log [Sports]
This is a logging program for scuba divers. It allows the user to log important information about each dive including Location, Tank Size and Psi, Bottom Time, Weather conditions, and water conditions. It even lets the user sketch a map of the location and add interesting comments about each dive.

11/20/2000 Vineyard Spray Calculator [Technical]
Vineyard Spray Calculator is a database set up to calculate calibration data for a pesticide sprayer in a wine grape vineyard application. The user enters the field parameters, the desired speed in which the sprayer will travel the desired gallons per acre of spray and the number of nozzles per row. The database then calculates the volume per nozzle required to get the desired application rate. There is also a calibration check in which the user can enter the actual measured volume per nozzle. The database will then calculate the actual gallons per acre at the desired speed or the actual speed the sprayer must travel to maintain the desired gallons per acre.

11/20/2000 PPM Calculator [Technical]
PPM Calculator is a database that calculates the amount of chemical necessary to maintain a desired level in Parts Per Million in an irrigation system of a vineyard or orchard. The user enters the field data, number of drip emitters per vine, the gallons per hour of the drip emitters, the type of chemical, percent concentration, the target PPM level and the number of hours to maintain the target level PPM. The database then calculates the total amount of chemical required and the injection rate in gallons per hour and gallons per minute.
