Assigning Prescription Files

Once Prescription files have been imported into the 20|20, each file will need to be assigned to its intended field. This can be done on the Field Setup page.

  1. Navigate to Setup - Fields
  2. Select the Client, Farm, and Field that will be using a prescription

Next, select what system type the Prescription file(s) will be used for. Options may include

  • Seeding
  • Liquid
  • Granular
  • Depth

Once the system is selected, tap on the prescription file box to look through existing prescription files and select the one that will be used for this field.

Prescription Field

After the prescription is selected, confirm that this is the desired prescription file, and if necessary, adjust the target zones before making it active on this field. An attribute selection box can be used on the top right corner of the screen, and either individual zones or the whole file can be adjusted by either a percent or number bump.

Prescription Edit

Press 'Save' once you are ready to assign the prescription. Finally, select what attribute will be used for each drive section. Complete the above process for each field that will be using a prescription file.

Controlling to Prescription Files

After the active field has a prescription file assigned to it, the system can use a prescription file for control. This applies to the following systems:

  • Seeding
  • Liquid
  • Granular

After the desired attribute and zones are selected, you can either adjust it by a percent, or bump the values up or down using the + or - buttons on the screen.
