Rates are defined in the tab 'Rates' of the form 'Rate tables', accessible in Modules > Land access > Governance > Rate tables.
- Crops use for fields: Crop type, maturity, unit and quantity. Crop type is a drop-down list containing various names of crops potentially found in the field. Maturity is another drop-down list containing choices describing the level of crop maturity – mature, seedling, etc. Unit allows you to choose if the rate is meant to apply for a single stem or for a surface (1 hectare, 1 acre, 1 m2, etc.).
- Trees work exactly the same as crops but with its own set of drop-down lists.
- Structures are based on for fields: Structure type, Rate type, Unit and Minimal value. Structure type contains the list of all possible structures found in the field. This list may evolve significantly from one area to another. Rate type allows users to choose if the rate is a fixed one per record or if the system should consider the “Unit field”. Unit allows you to choose if the rate is meant to apply for a length, a surface or a count. Finally the minimum value allows you to set a base price for a structure when applicable – should the calculated value for one structure be lower than this minimum value, then the system will replace the amount to pay with the minimum value. This is an optional field that does not necessarily apply for each structure type.
- Parcels are based on two fields: Parcel type and Unit. Parcel type includes the list of all possible types of parcels found in the field such as fallow land, water body, and pastureland. Unit allows you to choose which type of surface the rate applies to, such as 1 hectare, 1 acre or 1 m2.
