Define Croptypes

This screen allows groups of croptypes to be defined by a label. This provides a convenient way to refer to croptypes, for example when defining constraints, without having to repeatedly enter the croptype range.

LOG defines two labels automatically. ‘Origin’ and ‘Species’. The ‘Other’ label allows for an additional label to be defined by the user. These labels are essentially croptype attributes; they aggregate a subset of croptypes according to a common characteristic.

The screen below shows the define croptype section in LOG. As can be easily seen, it is quite logical to follow.

Naming Croptype Attributes

The first section of the Define Croptypes screen is used to name the croptype attributes.

For each attribute, ‘Origin’, ‘Species’ and ‘Other’ there exist two boxes, a smaller one above and a larger box below, and two buttons, Add and Remove. This is demonstrated below.

Croptype names can be typed into the smaller box above and then added to the list of names in the box below by clicking Add.

To remove a name from the list, select it using the mouse and click the Remove button directly to the right of the appropriate box.

 

Applying Attributes to Croptypes

The second part of the Define Croptypes form is for specifying which attributes apply to which croptypes.

LOG will automatically list each individual croptype with boxes referring to each different type of attribute.

An attribute can be applied to a croptype by clicking on the desired attribute name in the drop down list. Alternatively, by typing the first letter of desired attribute, LOG will guess the attribute name. If more than one croptype attribute begins with the same letter, keep typing the name and LOG will eventually find the correct attribute name.

Changes to the LOG 2.0 Define Croptypes Screen*

The define croptypes section of LOG had to be modified for version 2.0 of LOG. The change was to change the layout of the screen so that more croptypes could be shown on one screen. This change was necessary to accommodate large numbers of croptypes. Up to 400 croptypes can now be displayed. The new layout also makes it easier for the user to enter in the appropriate fields as they do not have to scroll as frequently.
