1. Click on Crops in the main purple menu and then Growth Cycles.
2. Click the green Add a Growth Cycle button. A popup will appear. Choose the crop from the dropdown and type the name of the variety. You can name the variety whatever you would like. Click save.
3. You will see this pop up. Choose the crop from the dropdown and type the name of the variety. You can name the variety whatever you would like.
4. Edit the settings in the seed/start stage by clicking on the white box to make the menu pop up. Choose an option from each of the fields to tell Agrilyst how this variety is usually seeded/started. If one of the settings changes from batch to batch (i.e. you seed different quantities depending on incoming orders) then insert the setting that is most common (you will be able to change them on-the-fly while you are actually seeding/starting a batch). Click done when you are finished.
5. Add another stage for the variety once it's seeded by dragging a widget from the left and dropping it below the seed/start stage. Then, click on the stage to open it's menu, edit the settings available, and click done.
6. Repeat step 5 for the rest of the crop template until your growth cycle is complete. Below is a list of the stages available to use in your growth cycle, as well as the settings to look for:
- "Wait" Stage - Choose the amount of days for the timer.
- "Move" Stage - Choose the zone (& optional subzone) the crop will be moved into. If this variety is moved into more than one zone, then choose the most common one for the template. You will be able to change the zone on-the-fly when checking off the "Move" task later. There is also a "Change Quantity" box which should ONLY be checked if you want to change the unit (i.e. you count batches in "trays" during the seed stage and then as "boards" or "plugs" later in the growth cycle) and/or change the quantity.
- "Harvest" Stage - Choose the type of harvest. If you choose "cut and come again" or "partial," click "done" and then there will be an option to make the harvest repeat.
