As part of your crop season, you're able to add a number of different transactions or movements. One of those is the ability to record a harvest.

A harvest can only be recorded when inside a crop season, and it can be either an actual or a forecast. 


Adding a harvest

To add a harvest, expand the Harvest section of your crop season and click Add harvest.

You can only harvest a crop / production type - in my case, that'd be barley. 


Harvest information

When adding a harvest transaction, you'll need to enter the following information:

  • Type (actual / forecast)

The ability to add it as an actual or forecast depends on your global date settings in the centre of your screen.

In the above screenshot, I can only raise a harvest as a forecast after October 2022.

  • Harvest date

This is an accrual or profit date, no cash date is required as harvesting a crop doesn't have an impact on your bank accounts bottom line.

  • Notes

This can be any additional notes you want to record against a harvest.

  • Product (e.g. Corn, or Barley)

This is the type of crop that you're harvesting.

  • Yield

Your yield is entered unit / area, e.g. tonnes / ha. Entering the yield will auto-populate the Total harvest cell. This will also auto-populate your fields below.

  • Field Breakdown

Field breakdown is how you nominate the fields where your crop type was harvested.

For example if you grew Barley across two fields, North & South, and you harvested only the North Field, your field distribution would be 100% North Field.

When you are happy with your details, select Next.

  • Intended Use

We can choose what we intend to use the harvested production for, we can add a split for different usages, and assign different prices for the various usage types. The types of usages are:

  • Used for Sale - where we intend to sell the crop

  • Used for Feed - where we intend to use the crop for feed that we will attribute to our livestock trackers

  • Used for Seed - where we intend to use the harvested crop to seed future crops, which we will attribute to those future crop seasons

  • Used for Bedding - where we intend to use the crop as a bedding product for livestock

The default usage is to sell your harvested production.

  • Quantity

Your total harvest is entered in unit, e.g. tonnes. This field will auto-populate based on the yield entered above

  • Price

Your average sale price or market price is entered $ / unit, e.g. $ / tonne.

When your details are correct, select Save

What's next

When your crop has been harvested, it'll be moved into your Product tracker. From there, you can sell the crop (either from the crop season or the product tracker) or you can leave it as crop on hand to be used or sold later.

As you raise harvests, these will contribute to your crops season KPIs.
