You should be able to create one RX planned mapped, for all the seed suppliced. When creating the Simple Application Plan the map can be edited for the portion of the Field getting the one supply from the section of the Field that will be split planted. The Split section will need to have lines created using the Buffer tool t create the parts of the field matching the planter width. The first row will be half the planter, then from that point forward the rows will be the entire width because of the turn arounds. (Hope this makes sense). Once al the Buffer lines have been created across that section of the field we will move to the upper left hand corner showing the VRA Summary. Select the first Seed Variety name from drop down list. Enter the seed rate in KS (example: we want to plant a population rate of 34000, because the FmX take the seed rate times 1000 (KS = kilo seed) enter 34. Click on the portion of the map receiving this rate and then click the color button for this rate. Setup a second seed rate for each corresponding rates for same section is applicable. Finally setup a zero rate for this first supply and select all the Buffer strip area for the other part of the field and click the color button for the zero rate. This will tell the map that this supply will not be planted in that portion of the field. Select second supply from drop down list. Make sure you have all the desired rates for this one and repeat process, defining areas that will get the supply and the other sections as zero where it will not be planted. Repeat this same process for the third supply. After all areas of map have been defined with needed rates and the corresponding zero rates, click the Save and Close button. Then you are ready to mark the Planned VRA Job from the Jobs tab as Workorder console and then complete the Write Job Data process.

Hope this all makes sense.
