Groups are combinations of Products that are proposed for a Grower/Farm/Fields.
There are two main types of Groups:
- Quantity Groups: These are used when you want to order a specific quantity of a product (ex. "I need 5 tons of Lime")
- Rate Groups: These are used when you want to order a quantity per acre of a product (ex. "I have 100 acres and need 50# of product per acre)
A Quantity Group may optionally have a Farm associated with it. This can be used to calculate Splits or coordinate a delivery location.
See here for how to create a Quantity Group
Rate Groups have two sub-categories:
- Standard Rate Group: These groups do not have Fields associated. You may enter any number of acres and all lines in this group will be calculated against that number.
- Field Group: These groups have Fields associated. The system will add up their acres. You can override this by setting the Applied Acres.
Fields in a Field Group will be evaluated for Splits

After Group(s) are specified, Products can then be added to the Groups.
