Crops and crop varieties can easily be assigned to fields within FarmQA. This feature allows users to track where crops and varieties are planted geographically per season. Assignments can be done from either the field list view or the map view, instructions for both can be found below.
NOTE: crop assignments are done per season, unless they are marked as Perennial.
