STEP 1: Transfer your existing crop plan into an AgSquared Crop Plan Template
There are AgSquared templates for two types of plantings, which can be downloaded from the bottom of this article:

Notes and Tips:
-If you don't have an existing crop plan in a spreadsheet, you may want to create one and then import it into your AgSquared account. For those familiar working with spreadsheets, creating a crop plan spreadsheet for the purpose of populating your AgSquared account may be a more expedient way for you to add crops to your account.
-If there is a problem with your import file, an error message will pop up and inform you what the issue is and how you can fix it. For further assistance on troubleshooting import files that are rejected, see this checklist.
-An import cannot be undone. Once a spreadsheet is imported, the only way to remove its associated crops and plantings is to delete them one by one. Please be sure to review that the information in your spreadsheet is correct before importing it.
-All imported crops are given a default icon. You can change this icon by clicking the Edit Crop button (represented by the pencil icon) and selecting an icon that best represents your crop.
