Recording custom fertilizer blends in FBN

How do I enter a custom dry fertilizer blend in FBN? I have several that just got named in the monitor a generic name, and FBN flags them as not matching. I want to enter what they actually are. I can only figure out how to add a custom liquid blend, but on dry it only allows individual products. What am I missing?

I'll second the desire for better/easier dry custom blends. We do mostly custom blends from Midwestern BioAg and I've stopped messing with it on FBN because sometimes every field is a different blend.

Does anyone from FBN monitor this to point me in the right direction? Seems this would be helpful if we have questions to be able to post here and get an answer from FBN, eventually would have a FAQ section.

Hey ****, thanks for following up. I had planned to reply but was having an issue creating a post from my employee account. We're going to reach out to get more information from you and then post a reply here once we've got a better handle on your question. One known issue that we have is that you need to create a new tank mix for every different application rate, which is something we've heard (from other growers) can be a bit frustrating.

I don't even see the option to create a dry mix fertilizer. Tank mix goes to liquid. When I select dry fertilizer my only options are single products.
