Crop Maintenance

Enter the crop information at the following screen. If using the nutrient recommendation section of the Agvance Planning module, enter the nutrient information. Otherwise, only the Crop Name and Units are necessary.

  • Crop Name – Enter the name of the crop as it will appear on reports (Field information, Field Plans, Blend Tickets, Mapping Crop Zones, etc.).
  • Units – Indicate the harvest units.
  • Rating Units – Indicate the units per acre for variable rate seeding of the crop.
  • Nutrient removal – If using the nutrient recommendation portion of the Planning module, enter the pounds of nutrients required to grow one unit of this crop.
  • Nitrogen Contribution – Enter the amount of nitrogen this crop contributes back into the soil, if any. Use the same units as defined above.
  • Crop Type – Indicate whether the crop is a Grain or Forage. This is used for lime recommendations.
  • Default Yield Goal – This is used as the default for generating nutrient recommendations in Mapping or Planning.
  • Adjustment Name – Name the adjustment value when working with field operations data. An example of an adjustment for Corn is Moisture. This is used when importing yield data into the Mapping module.
  • Target Adjustment Value – Use this value to adjust the numbers. An example for a moisture adjustment to corn would have a value of 15 or 15.5 for the adjustment. This is used when importing yield data into the Mapping module.
  • Crop Zone Style – Double-click to select the color to represent the crop zone in Mapping.
  • External Id – This is used for linking crops to an external database, such as through the API.
  • AgSync Crop – For companies using AgSync, if setup is done in Blending and the user has appropriate credentials, this selection displays. Select from the list of AgSync crops. The crop information is then sent to AgSync.
