Solutions for Agricultural Challenges

AQUAS has over 20 years of experience providing services and solutions in the agricultural industry. Some of the solutions we have provided include:

  • Systems to implement source and non-point source pollutant discharge models to measure the impact of chemical inputs to waterways in the US
  • Web-based systems for electronic permits and waivers
  • Labor time accounting and activity-based costing
  • Payment and billing systems
  • Creation of electronic certificates of inspection

AQUAS has also implemented models to assist American farmers in selecting pesticides based on crop, regional location, climate, and cost of pesticide application per acre. This model incorporated Geographic Information Systems for reporting and visualizing data by State and County, crop, and pesticide use.

“AQUAS always provides USDA, AMS with excellent service. They go above and beyond to ensure that we are getting the system that meets our requirements.”

USDA Contracting Officer

AQUAS Developed the Conformance Assessment Management System (CAMS) for USDA to provide a common solution to the various grading/inspection/audit activities that each program within Agricultural Marketing Services (AMS) performs on a day-to-day basis. AQUAS worked closely with representatives of various programs such as Poultry, Livestock, Dairy, Fruits & Vegetables, etc. to create a common data architecture, identify processes and methods performed by each program, and business area specific components. AQUAS developed strategic interfaces to other systems such as the NFC’s FMMI accounting system and the WebTA system, and a service-oriented architecture capable of handling CAMS transactions for all specific functions.

AQUAS conducted an analysis of requirements and designed a database system to support the modeling of alternative data model and database schema to support a new application. AQUAS migrated the legacy system to a new environment and expand the functionality of the system. AQUAS included new system modules that linked the application with MAPINFO, as a geographic information system (GIS) for purposes of reporting pesticide impact on croplands on a county-by-county, state-by-state basis.
