In AgSquared there are 3 pre-defined planting residence types which differ based on if, how often, and where they are transplanted during the course of the growing season:
- In-Ground Plantings are directly sown into the ground in a field or greenhouse and never transplanted.
- Container, then In-Ground Plantings are started in containers and then transplanted into the ground out in a field or greenhouse.
- Container Plantings are planted in containers and never in the ground. They may be transplanted, but always from one container to another.
When you create a planting you must select where the planting will residence so AgSquared can determine the relevant details you will need to enter about the planting. This is done on Page 1 of the edit planting form in the Crops tool:
The residence that you choose for a planting determines what kind of information you can enter and assign to it:
-In-Ground Plantings can have sowing, first, and final harvest dates only, and can be assigned to fields or growing enclosures (with exposed soil) on your map.
-Container, then In-Ground Plantings can have sowing, multiple transplant, and first and last harvest dates. Page 2 of the Edit Planting form allows you to enter in as many transplant events that ae required for a planting. The sowing of Container, then in Ground Plantings must occur in growing enclosures, and then can be transplanted to either fields or growing enclosures (with exposed soil) on your map.
-Container Plantings can have sowing, multiple transplant, and first and last harvest dates, and can only be assigned to growing enclosures.
Note: Once you assign a planting a residence type and subsequently create records for that planting (i.e. location, dates, etc), you can not go back and change the planting's residence type.
