Crescendo over only PART of a sustained/tied note

See attached score. I’d like the crescendo to begin in m21 and continue to the end of m22. How do I do that? All my efforts to do it cause the crescendo to begin in m20.

Easiest way is with the caret.

Invoke the caret, move it to the start of measure 21, add a crescendo (< is the keyboard shortcut), then use the spacebar to advance the caret to the end if measure 22.

Works great, thank you!

You could also input a hairpin across the whole tie chain, then shorten it and move it along the grid.
