Ensure your fields are prepared for the growing season, regardless of the crop being planted, by:

  • Creating customizable step-by-step crop plans: Tailor your management plan with as many steps as needed.
  • Incorporating various management practices: Include steps for fertility, planting, herbicide application, and more, to fully capture your field's management plan.
  • Loading each plan step with specific products: Identify the products you'll be applying at each step.
  • Setting application rates: Predefine the rates for these products to eliminate the need for double-checking when it's time to apply them.
