How do I set up Crops?
Within AgStudio, products include Crops, Commodities, Seed, Biosolids, Chemicals, and Amendments.
By default, AgStudio already contains an extensive USDA crop list. This article describes how to add and edit crops to be used in a specific domain and crop year. Only users with Administrative privileges can actually create a crop.
Details about all aspects of the Crop Editor are available in the embedded Help files within the extension.
- Commodities set up in AgStudio
- From the Setup menu, select Crops to display the Crop Editor in which you add the crops you work with from a pre-defined USDA crop list.
- In the Crop Editor, be sure to set the Domain to Entire Database and the Crop Year to the crop year in which you want to add crops.
- For the crops you added, select the crop in the grid and click Edit to provide details including: USDA Crop Name, USDA Crop Type, Rates, and Growth Stages.
- Upon adding and defining the crops to the Entire Database, you want to change the Domain within the Crop Editor to the grower you are defining and to the crop year in which you are working. You would then use the “Add” function to add these crops to the grower domain.
Note: The Crop Editor works under the assumption that one crop (the item you plant; for example, Corn) can grow many commodities (what you harvest; for example, corn grain or corn silage).
