Crop planning tool - Make inputs independent from setup inputs

I had a few customers request a change to the crop planning tool recently add Agri-trade red deer 2022 show.

Presently the inputs are tied to the actual inputs in the file, and when you make a change to the purchase price for instance, when you have multiple columns it changes them there too. Customers want each column to be able to have independent data. One way we could do this is to have the inputs as "preview" or, independent free floating data objects. This way they could play with different scenarios of purchases prices and other costs and make the crop planning tool even more useful.

    I second this! I do not want to use the default fertilizer rate on two different crops. It should be set up similar to the activity recording function where you can override default rate with actual rate.

    I have also found that changing a fertilizer rate in one crop automatically changes it across all commodities. The amount of N applied on Canola is much greater than Wheat or other crops. It makes the crop planning/budgeting process completely useless right now.
