What type of data do you have that gives you the Elevation? You would need some sort of GPS map that has logged this. If you do not have access to this type of information you can still create VRA maps manually based upon the Field Boundary map. Here are the steps to follow:

1. Place desired seed supply into the Working group box from the Inputs Tab.
2. Click the Apply to Fields button.
3. Select field name and click the Record Planned Job button.
4. When the Planned Farming box appears, make sure correct Job Name, field and crop year enterprise are selected. At bottom place check mark in the VRA box.
5. When the next screen appears - on left highlight the Field Name with boundary map. On left you can select Default Rate and enter the desired rate. Click OK.
6. This will then change the mapping screen showing the field boundary map that can be edited to manually trace the different areas that would have different seeding rate.
7. From the upper left hand corner, there will be a VRA Summary. The Seed Supply name will be listed. If the field will have different rates applied to field you need to click the Green plus button to add multiple lines. Then enter the desired rates needed for seeding.
8. If you have multiple areas needing different rates, hold down on the Ctrl key and left click on areas on map that will receive the same applied rates. Click the color button on left for this correct rate. Repeat until all areas have been assigned the correct Rates.
9. Click the Save and Close button.

Hope this makes sense.
