Dear CropManage users,
After many months of development, CropManage is about to undergo major changes to improve the online irrigation and nutrient management decision support tool. These updates should make CropManage easier to use, faster, and more flexible for customizing it for additional commodities. CropManage will need to be offline for approximately 2 hours to migrate the existing database to the new version on October 29th between 8:30 and 10:30 am. None of your data will be lost during this transition, and all of your existing records will be available in the new version. Please use your existing login credentials to access the new version. After the transition to the new CropManage, you will not have access to the old version. Additionally, you will be automatically directed to a new web address (cropmanage.ucanr.edu) when accessing CropManage.
In the upcoming weeks, we will provide short articles in the CropManage blog to explain some of the new features of the updated decision support tool. Although we have done our best to identify and correct errors in the new version, undoubtedly, more bugs will be identified after the transition. We will do our best to correct all errors as soon as they are identified. You can also alert us to any errors that you encounter by emailing me (firstname.lastname@example.org). I also welcome you to suggest additional changes or improvements that are needed. Even after the transition to the new version, the programming staff will continue working to improve the user experience and usefulness of CropManage.
The Programming Staff at UCANR and myself are truly excited that we have an updated version of CropManage that should better support growers in making decisions on irrigation and fertilizer applications.
Thank you for your patience and support.
