After you choose the crop type, you can add variety by entering it manually.
Next, you define the seeding date or save the crop as not seeded yet. To set up the seeding date, click on the calendar icon and choose the day by clicking on it. If the crop has not been seeded yet, tick the appropriate box.
You can also decide to show the information about the crop as the current season. To learn more about seasons, read this article.
