1. Click Operations_icon.png Operations icon located next to the Bunny_for_Jose.png Magic icon.

5. Click GENERATE, and then, if you are satisfied with the result.
6. Click APPLY to create the layer.

To input prescription values on a zonation map:

1. Generate a zonation map as outlined in section Zonation.
2. On the right sidebar under rate [units/ha] input the desired values for each zone.
3. The column amount [units] will update based on the inputs.

Export Zonation

To export a zonation map:
