Plant Details

Farmbrite Plant Tab 

Your plant tab is where all your plant types and details are stored. You can add many different types of plants here. Also housed here is the detailed information transferred from the seed packets.

Entering Information into the Plant Tab

You can add plants to this area in two ways:

Add plants one at a time:

You can add a new plant by clicking the green button at the top of the page that says 'New Plant Type'. 

Upload a list of plants:

You can also upload many plants at once by clicking the cloud button beside the  'New Plant Type' button. This will give you a template to download and instructions to import the CSV file.

When creating or editing a plant’s details you can provide the following information.

  • Type: Select from a standard list of common agricultural crops. See the full list of support plant types below
  • The plant variety (if applicable)
  • An icon for the plant
  • The seed company you purchased seed from (if applicable)
  • Plant spacing (in inches)
  • Planting depth (in inches)
  • Planting method: Select from “Direct Sow”, “Transplant”, or “Other”
  • Indicate whether the plant is a perennial
  • The number of seeds per hole or mound
  • Days to emerge
  • Days to maturity: This is used to calculate the harvest date of any plants planted (based on the date planted)
  • Any additional information or description you want to record.

Planting information like spacing, depth, method, seed per hole, days to emerge, and days to maturity are almost always available on the seed packet.

Click “Save & Exit” to save your plant and return to the Master Plant List or click “Save & New” to create another plant.

Supported Plant Types

There are many plant types natively supported by Farmbrite that you will find available to click on. If you do not see a plant type that supports your business, please contact us and we will add this to the feature request to add this for you. This may takes some time.

Non supported plant types 

If you have an item that is not already in Farmbrite,  you can choose the "other" category. You will find ' other' category at the very bottom of the types list. After you enter 'other' Farmbrite will ask for more details. Use this for herbs  and other types of specialty plants that are not currently available.
