Creating Plants

The master plant list is your global list of plants across all of your fields and all years of production. This allows for easy re-use and management of crop specific information without needing to repeat or re-enter that information season to season.

Learn more about the Master Plant List.

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

Importing Plants to the Master List

If you are migrating to Farmbrite from another farm management system or from Excel or Google docs and want an easy way to add your plants to Farmbrite, you should consider our import feature. By simply mapping your data from another system to a format we’ve specified you can easily create your basic plant records. To access the import feature, select the arrow on the right side of the “Add New Plant” button and choose the “Import Plants” option. A dialog will guide you through importing your plants.

You can import the following:

  • type
  • variety
  • description
  • days_to_maturity
  • spacing
  • seed_company
  • planting_method
