How do I handle fallow fields in Traction?

In this article, we'll walk through how to assign a Field as Fallow.

With the updated Crops and Harvest Product workflow, you can add Fallow directly into your account and treat it as you would any other crop.

If you are already familiar with how to add Crops and Harvest Products to your account, all you need to do is simply add the Fallow crop and add a Harvest Product for the same.
