Farm Years allows you to get a view of cropping for past and upcoming years. For each year you can update the usages for your fields. This means you have a visual plan of what happens on your fields. You can also use years to separate your plans for next season's work from what you are working on at the moment. 


Farm Years don't have start and end dates so they can be used in the way that works for your farm. For example you could align them with your annual harvest or accounting year. You can change between maps from the past two years and look forward two years.
