Recommendations written in FarmQA can be edited to only apply to a specific part of a field. Think of partial field recommendations as a way to recommend spot spraying for a weed or pest to one of your growers. Partial field recommendations have the added functionality of automatically recalculating the total amount of product needed to complete the recommendation based on the area that needs to be sprayed.
