What is it?

Crop Profiler is a FileMaker Pro runtime application designed to make it easier to collect and organize the information required to prepare a crop profile (based on the crop profile template prepared by the Office of Pest Management Policy). You can then export the crop profile in a format that can be opened by most major word processors for final editing.

Requirements

Macintosh

Windows

These are the minimum requirements. Better results will be obtained with more RAM and at least Pentium or PowerPC class processors.

Installation

Mac

When you download the compressed file that contains the Crop Profiler program, your web browser should automatically decompress it. If not, locate the file named "Crop Profiler(Mac).sit" and double-click on it. If you have Stuffit Expander installed, it should launch and decompress the file (Stuffit Expander can be obtained from http://www.aladdinsys.com/). Once the archive is decompressed, copy the folder named "Crop Profiler Folder" to wherever you keep your application programs (usually the Applications folder at the top level of your hard drive). When you are done, the folder should look like this:

Note: Although many of the screenshots in this guide are from the Mac version of the application, they should be applicable to the Windows version as well.
