👩‍🌾 How OneSoil's crop rotation tool can benefit you

  • The crop rotation table lets you store your information about your field in one place. Seasons, fields, crops, planting and harvest dates, yield, field area... everything's saved in one table.

  • The crop rotation table is available in the OneSoil mobile and web apps. You can access it anytime from any device. Your records are secure and just a tap away.

  • We can help you allocate crops automatically. We'll factor in previous crops, analyze the crops you're going to plant in the current season, and create a crop rotation plan.

📊 How to fill crop rotation data for a season

  • In the 'Crop Rotation' tab, add crops, planting dates, harvest dates, and yield for each field in the respective season. Multiple crops can be added to a single field.

  • In the mobile app, the crop rotation table is accessible by clicking the button in the upper left corner of the screen with the names of the seasons.

✨ How to create crop rotation automatically

Just select the crops you're going to plant and specify their planting areas. We'll plan crop rotation in the current season for you by allocating crops automatically to your fields. We'll also factor in previous crops if you've provided this data for the previous season.

How to allocate crops automatically in the web app:

  1. Open the 'Crop rotation' tab and click 'Allocate crops automatically'.

  2. If you want to factor in previous crops, fill in the crops planted in the previous season.

  3. Select the crops you'll plant in the current season and set the planting area for each crop.

  4. Click 'Allocate to fields'. The app will automatically create a crop rotation plan for the current season.

What about the mobile app?

It's not possible to automatically allocate crops there, but you can manually fill in the crop rotation.
