Adding Crops to a Field

Crops planted in individual fields rely on information stored in the Master Plant List. Learn more about the Master Plant List.

From the crops page for a specific field you can add additional crops using the green “Add New Crop” button. Click on this button to add new crops to this field, or select the arrow on the right side of the button to import crops.

When you click “Add New Crop” you’ll be prompted to enter information about your crop on the Crop Detail Screen.
