Q: What is the difference between the Grower Login and Sales Rep Login

 

A: The Grower Login is for the individual grower and houses all entries for the one selected grower. The Grower Login requires the membership number and postal code to create an entry. The Sales Rep Login is created to access multiple growers.

Individual Grower membership numbers are initially needed and obtained from NCGA. Entries created while in the Sales Rep Login will house their database of information year-to-year.
