This guide will show you how to create treatment records using two different batches of the same treatment. This will be necessary when the first batch is used up during the treatment and a second batch is required.
Creating the Record
Firstly, create a separate inventory item for each container. This will allow you to accurately enter the relevant batch number, manufacturing date and expiry date for the separate drums. See Inventory Management for further information.
Select the Mob or Paddock you wish to treat. See our articles on Livestock Treatments or Paddock Treatments for more.
Select the two batches that are to be used.
Enter the Dosage or Application Rate for the first batch. This will calculate the Total Amount Applied. Using the amount that we know is remaining in the first batch, manually overwrite the Total Amount Applied.
E.g. The batch has 1L remaining, but the total amount applied will be calculated as 4.112 calculated from the rate and total head/ha. Manually overwrite the total to be 1L, the remainder of the batch.
Enter the same Dosage or Application Rate for the second batch. Again, this will calculate the Total Amount Applied. As some of this total was already used in the first batch, manually subtract this amount from the Total Amount Applied for the second batch.
E.g. Total Amount Applied will again calculate as 4.112 L, we know that 1L was used from the first batch. Manually overwrite the Total Amount Applied field and subtract the 1L used in the first batch. This means 3.112L of the second batch was used.
Press Save to finalise your entry.
You can view your treatment reports in your Web App. Simply go to Reports > Mobs or Cropping > Treatment Records.
Use the Group By field to group by batch number. This will allow you to see paddock or mobs that were treated with each batch number.
