Step 1 - What do you intend to plant?

Enter the details for each of your fields or management unit including expected yields per green hectare. Once you're done click 'Copy to scenario B' and change your Cotton Choices™ to compare different scenarios.

“Green hectare” means the planted area of a field, calculated as a percentage of the field actually planted compared to what would be planted with one metre row spacing. Where the percentage is greater than 100%, 100% will be the calculation used. All cotton is measured as green hectares.
