Novel Ways staff are working on a new software program called GrassTrack to bundle with the GrassMaster Pro, and also support older GrassMaster I and II drymatter instruments.

This new software will read in data from RS232 and USB ports, will automatically find the USB port addresses on new computers, and will be fully supported in the years to come. The graphing functions are also more useful. It has a very recognisable Windows look, as it is written in C Sharp.

Both software packages are provided at the moment, and we are handling any minor teething issues as they are advised to us. The GrassTrack program automatically advises when an update is available, if the computer is connected to the web at the time it is started up. Ongoing work will be carried out over the summer break.
