Planting prescriptions with Climate Fieldview Scripts… How many zones

For those of you using Climate Scripts to create your planting prescriptions. How many zones do you generally set the script for? I’ve seen some of my fields that the script defaults to 4 zones, other times 3 zones, and other times 5 zones. Do you just let the script do it’s thing, or do you set the number of zones to a standard number per field? Same with population, do you let the script set the population rates for you, or do you adjust them to the nearest 1k or even .5k? Trying to learn what’s best…. Of course, what’s best for your farm definitely won’t be the same for my farm… I understand that! So, I guess I’m looking for everyone’s opinion…

I should add that my smallest field is 75 acres and my largest is 210 acres.
