Add the number of bales collected on each field
The harvest record will become of your activity list, You can view harvest details as part of the field history and field inputs.
After the first harvest you can set up a job for the second cut!
To set up the job for the second cut you can repeat this process but make sure instead of adding the output “First cut (Bales)” add the output “Second cut (bales)”. This means that you can compare the yields between outputs (in this case cuts.)
When you have completed the second cut on this field you will be able to view dates on the field history and view the total output as part of a field input.
Add observations to jobs
Open the Field Job from the To-do list or the activity list.
