Printing 

The new crop report has been designed to be shorter in terms of the regular updates to make them more user friendly and more usable on tablets and smartphones. However users can still print off the reports and combine the different sections into a more comprehensive document. 

Just follow these steps to print off each document

1. Click on the share button on the top right hand side of the screen. (Highlighted in red)

2. With your finger scroll up the screen from the bottom to reveal the print button.

3. Select your printer and the pages you wish to print off.

   

 

Alternatively each update/reference document/ product reference table etc. can be viewed separately as a PDF document and subsequently can be printed (follow steps 2 & 3) and combine with other sections to form a bigger document. Many of these tables will therefore only need to be printed off once, unlike the previous versions whereby all the tables were included in all the crop reports.
