With today’s Fruit Grower Report, I’m Bob Larson. Whether you do it yourself or have a Human Resources team to handle it for you, hiring a crew to plant, prep and harvest your crops probably costs you valuable time and money. But, a new high-tech start up called Harvust, that’s Harvust with a “U,” can make the hiring and training process much easier and more cost-effective.

Co-founder Riley Clubb says one of the big pluses of Harvust is accuracy …

CLUBB … “You can’t submit an incomplete I-9 on Harvust, right, and you can’t put the birth date in the wrong place, you can’t put the apartment number in the wrong format. It’s very, very accurate and it’s very fast. So, that all saves a lot of time and money.”

And the feedback, Clubb says has been fantastic …

CLUBB … “Actually, it’s really cool because we hear feedback from farm workers all the time saying how much they appreciate being able to do these things on their own device, being able to watch a video or listen to a handout in their own language. And, they leave feedback all the time saying, you know, that was great.”

And since many workers speak Spanish, Clubb says they’ve got that covered too …

CLUBB … “Everything is 100% translated back and forth between English and Spanish, not only the written translations, but the audio translations. Whether it’s a message you’re sending or it’s a safety training you want to send out, everything comes with an audio translation.”
