I am a little fuzzy what you are looking for, but maybe you are asking for a Planned VRA Job or map showing a recommended rate of seed to apply to the Field. If so, here are those steps.

Place desired items into the Working Group box including a seed supply
Click the Apply to fields button
Select correct Field Name and click the Record Planned job.
Enter desired Job name and Crop Year Enterprise.
Check the VRA box above the Seed Supply name
Enter a defailt rate and click OK.
Click OK at the Planned job screen.
Displayed will be map of entire field boundary.
Use the Split Line Tool button
Create desired polygon areas.
Finish and click the Save button.
Click the Select Tool button
From the Upper left hand corner click the Green + button to create the needed rate lines for this map.
Enter correct kiloseed rates into each box, so each rate has a different color button right of rate number.
Left click on one polygon area, then click the color button right of correct rate number
Repeat for next polygon area and click the correct color button. Repeat uintil eac polygon area has the correct color rate needed.
Click Save and Close.

Then to send this file to FMX follow these steps:
