Getting Started with Crops

Depending on what types of plants you grow, getting your crops and fields set up may take a little time. We've tried to make this process as easy as we can by adding wizards and entering pre filled crop type information for you to choose from. 

In your Farmbrite account you will find lots of information under the crops tab. You can enter your plants, fields, greenhouses and beds. 

The main crops page

The main Crops page in Farmbrite provides you access to features to help you manage your crop and produce production. This includes:

Grow Locations

Grow locations in Farmbrite can be anywhere that you are growing plants and want to keep track of the productivity of that area. For example, a grow locations can represent a traditional 40 acre field of row crops, an orchard of trees or berries, or a market garden plot, or a raised bed, a greenhouse or even a grazing area for your livestock.

Crop Plan

A crop plan is a print out of your plants that have been entered, when they are growing and when they are expected to be harvested. You can change this data within the crops and the grow locations.

Location Map

A location map is available to draw property boundaries, buildings, fields and beds, animal enclosures, irrigation and buffer zones.
