How do I edit the size of my field once I’ve imported it?

Inside Geofolia a field has different areas, the ‘Area’ and the ‘Map Area’


As you can see above the Map Area is different to the Area, Geofolia works off the Area and not the Map Area, so long as the map looks close to the field on the farm the Area can be inputted to the correct value. To edit simply click in the Area box and overwrite it

When you next complete and activity the systems will use the new entered Area in any calculations

This will get carried over year on year however will not affect the previous years if that has been changed for contracting or different field margins.

With them both selected go up to the tools  button at the top of the map and select the merge button



This will come up with the new field box where you can change the name, crop and details about the field as if you are creating a new field.


Click the OK button when you are happy with the details entered and this will bring the two halves of the field back as one, it is worth noting you can only do this when the two field boundaries are touching.

How to put Foliar Fertilisers and other Non-Default Inputs on spraying activities?

Geofolia may not automatically let you put foliar fertiliser or similar input types through the sprayer.

A good rule of thumb is if it doesn’t have a MAPP number it will initially struggle to be put on a spraying activity.

Using the foliar fertiliser as an example, start in your input tab and select Fertiliser



In your Fertiliser tab either create or edit your fertiliser so that its type is correct, in this example I’ll use Manganese



The next step is to check the Settings tab, more specifically your Activity settings



In your spraying activity you will need to check your Settings and Default Values –


In the Settings you will need to make sure the Quantity of Fertilising Element (NPKMgS) is checked



And in the Default Values make sure foliar fertiliser is present in the acceptable Input Type



Once all this is done it should present as an option in the spray activity.
