Entering Information into Field Story™

To enter information into Field Story, click* the Field Story red product circle across the top of the webpage once you are logged into your account. Then, click the field you would like to edit in the Farm Tree on the left side of the page. As you move through the process of editing information in Field Story, you may run into three different scenarios:

  • Editing Rooster Events in Field Story
  • Adding New Events in Field Story
  • Deleting Events in Field Story

*If you are viewing Morning Farm Report® on a mobile device, you will tap instead of click.

Editing Rooster Events in Field Story
You have just added a new field to your Morning Farm Report account. Field Story has created a crop rotation including field events within each crop year for the field. All of the field events say “Rooster” on the far right. Rooster events are pre-populated by the Morning Farm Report system when a field is created. They are designed to save you time by allowing you to edit the field events instead of creating new field events. For example, you see a Rooster planting event, but the planting date is incorrect and you want to change it to the actual planting date. 

 

To edit a Rooster event, select the crop year that you want to edit. Click on "2017-Corn."


Then, select the event you want to edit by clicking on the red pencil next to the field event name (Ex: Field Characteristic, Planting, etc.). For this example, the planting event will be edited. 


Next, select the date by clicking on the date pill which is highlighted in red in the image below. A new window will appear in the center of your screen.


Select your desired planting date on the calendar. Use the arrows at the top of the calendar to change months and years. Click “Next.” 


Click the "Crop" pill if the crop is incorrect. If the crop is correct, move to the next step below. 


Select the "Seed Type" pill to enter in your hybrid or variety. Continue to enter in information for the event as you are automatically taken through the next steps. Click “Save.” 


After you save a field event, you will see the Rooster tag change to the name on the account. In the image below, you can see that the planting event now has the name of the user rather than Rooster. This informs you that you have customized an event and changed the pre-populated Rooster information. 


Adding New Events in Field Story

You have just added a new field to your Morning Farm Report account. Field Story has created a crop rotation including field events within each crop year for that field. All of these events say Rooster on the far right. You see a tillage, planting, fertilization, and harvest event. You agree that you have performed these events on that field, but you also performed a chemical application that you want to add. If you do not see the desired field event within the Field Story timeline, you have to add a new field event.

To add a new event in Field Story, click on the “Add New Event” button above the Field Story timeline or the “Add New Event” button within the crop year you are editing (options highlighted below). Each button performs the same exact function. A new window will appear in the center of your screen. 


Select the type of event that you want to add. For this example, a chemical application will be added. Click on the "Chemical Application" icon.


Select the date of the chemical application on the calendar. Use the arrows at the top of the calendar to change months and years. Click “Next.”


Select the chemical that was applied. Continue to enter in information for the event as you are automatically taken through the steps. Click “Save.”


After you create a new field event, you can see the chemical application event has been added to the Field Story timeline below. Regardless of the field event type (planting, fertilization, harvest completion, etc.), adding a new event in Field Story is the same process. 


Deleting Events in Field Story

You have just added a new field to your Morning Farm Report account. Field Story has created a crop rotation including field events within each crop year for that field. All of these events say "Rooster” on the far right. You see a tillage, planting, fertilization, and harvest event. You agree that you planted, fertilized, and harvested that field, but you did not run a tillage tool across the field. If you see an undesired field event within the Field Story timeline, you have to delete the event.

To delete a field event in Field Story, select the crop year that you want to edit. Click on the year and crop type. 


Then, select the event you want to delete by clicking on the red pencil next to the event name (Ex: field characteristic, planting, etc.). For this example, a tillage event will be deleted, so "Tillage" was clicked on. 


Select the “Delete this event” pill within the tillage event (highlighted below). 


Select “Confirm Delete.” 

The tillage event will be removed from the Field Story timeline for the crop year selected. After you click "Confirm Delete," you can see that the tillage event has been deleted from the Field Story timeline below. This deletion will only affect the crop year you have selected. Deleting an event is the same for all other event types except for a planting event. Deleting a planting event will delete the whole crop year and the other events included in it.
