Release Notes, September 2, 2022


This release includes updates to the MRV’s Crops module. Users will now see default tillage depth selections when choosing an implement. The tillage depth input is no longer optional and is now a required part of the tillage event. Another change to the tillage event is the post tillage residue question. Each tillage event will require the users to provide a post tillage residue. The post residue will be a drop-down selection that groups the different selections. Users will select their option from ranges of  0-15, 15-30, 30-50, or greater than 50. Another feature included in this release is the validation protection that was added to the project’s practice change setting. The feature has now been updated to not allow the removal of “Pending enrollment” and “Normal operation.”  Users will additionally no longer be able to remove all of the primary practice changes. Each MRV must have at least one primary practice change selected.

Other changes included in this release fix a couple of noted map issues. The MRV’s map feature will no longer freeze up when editing a selection and then panning the map. Editing and right clicking on the field prior to panning the map would previously lock the MRV feature and users would have to do a page refresh. The other map feature fix included in this release fixes the CLU (Common Land Units) shape issue. Previously the selection of a CLU, edit of CLU, and removal of CLU left the field boundaries the same as the edit instead of going back to its original shape. Users will now see the CLUs return to their original shape when the selection is removed and regardless of any editing. The full list of release notes has been included below.

Added Features

  • The MRV’s fertilizer database structure has been updated to include the needed columns for sending fertilizer data to the models. Users will not notice a difference until the UI begins to utilize the new data structure in future development work. The database structure will allow additional development for the automation of modeling JSON files.  
  • The Crops module’s tillage event has been updated to include additional questions. Users will now select a tillage implement and a default tillage depth will be provided. The tillage event will now include a post tillage residue question. For each tillage event, users will provide the amount from a drop-down selection. Producers that utilize a strip till type tillage operation will be asked additional questions for the strip till width and the width of the row.

Known Issues

  • The aggregation on project’s acreage and field count is incorrect once the project has multiple pages for the producer list.
  • The validation that is being done for producer fields overlapping against others is currently being placed in the Final Review and Submission module. The boundary overlap and other related field boundary validation/verification will be moved from the current module to a future planned page.
  • Uploading a csv of producers will fail if one or more of the producers already has an existing MRV account.
  • Producers that have self-registered on the registration page will show a status of N/A on the MRV’s admin pages. Once the producer’s enrollment request is approved or denied, the producer’s status will be updated.

Fixed Issues

  • The practice change settings for projects has been improved to make sure project administrators or staff do not accidentally make mistakes. Users will no longer be able to remove all primary practice changes and save. The other improvement to this feature is not being able to remove the  internally used practice changes (Pending enrollment & Normal operations).
  • The bug making the map feature become unresponsive has been fixed. Users can now select a area, make their needed changes, pan the map, and then remove their selection. The map will no longer freeze and require a page refresh to go back to the MRV’s Fields and Practice Changes module.  
  • Another map bug has been fixed in this release. The selection of a  CLU (Common Land Unit) and removal of the selection will result in the CLU reverting back to its default shape. Fields that were edited and removed previously required the user to pan the map to revert the CLU shape back to its default.
