🍃 The benefits of using seasons:

The division into seasons allows you to save crop rotation data and analyze field data for previous seasons. Imagine corn was planted in your field in 2016; in 2017, it was fallow; in 2018, wheat was planted; and, in 2019, part of the field had corn, and the other part had wheat. Creating seasons allows you to keep this field history.

Field data such as NDVI, growing degree days, and accumulated precipitation charts are only available from 2016 on. If you want to check this data for any season starting from 2016 to now, just fill in the field information for that season.

➕ How to create a season

The first season is created by default when you register. To create a new season, click on the 'Seasons' icon in the side menu. A window for selecting the season will then appear. There, you can choose another season or create a new one.

Click '+', the icon for adding a new season. A window will open where you need to enter the name, as well as the start and end dates of the season. The "Copy fields..." checkbox is needed for transferring fields from the previous season: uncheck it if you do not want to copy fields from the previous season to the new one. Don't forget to confirm the creation of the season at the end!

🌤 How to edit a season

Click the 'Seasons' tab in the side menu. A window with the list of seasons will appear. Hover over the desired season and click the edit icon. In the window that opens, you can change the name of the season and its start and end dates.

➖ How to delete a season

To delete a season, go to the season editing window (see the previous section on how to edit a season) and select 'Delete season'.

🔄 How to transfer a field from one season to another

Open the field that needs to be moved to another season, click the three dots at the top of the screen, and select 'Edit field'. In the window that opens, you'll see the 'Add to season' button.

It is convenient to transfer fields from the crop rotation table. Select the 'Crop rotation' tab in the side menu and add the missing fields from the previous seasons.

If you're creating a new season and want to copy all fields from the previous season, select the 'Copy fields...' option when creating the season.

🗑 How to delete a field from a season

There are three ways to delete a field:

  1. Click a field in the field list, then click the three dots on the right ---> 'Delete field'.

  2. In the list of fields, use checkboxes to select the desired fields, then click 'Delete' at the bottom of the screen.

  3. In the Crop Rotation tab, hover the mouse cursor over the field in the desired season, click the three dots, and then select 'Delete field from season'.

📱 What about the mobile app?

In the mobile app, you can manage seasons with a button in the upper left corner of the screen. There, you can switch between seasons, edit their names and dates, as well as add and delete seasons. If you are creating a new season and want to transfer fields from the previous season, tick the 'Copy fields' option when creating the season.
