Yield Monitoring

Yield monitor accuracy is typically defined at the field level.

For decision making and improving field performance year over year, growers need accurate yield information that is trustworthy at any point in the field. Here are a few that we are highlighting in our Harvest Edition.

Product SpotlightFAIR 7830-TD BALE PROCESSOR

FieldStar®II is a full featured, integrated yield monitor with the C2100 display and comes standard on many AGCO combines. The FieldStar®II records important machine and crop data including yield, moisture content, engine load, fuel usage and sieve settings, allowing growers to use the knowledge collected at harvest to analyze and adjust tillage, fertilizer, seed rate and improve application of insecticide and herbicide treatments for future crop production. The system's standard ISO XML data format is compatible with the major Farm Management Information Software (FMIS) platforms currently on the market.

FieldStar II enables you to collect the data you need to make business decisions:

  • Collect data that enables you to make the best decisions to maximize yields with given resources (Planting, Harvesting): GPS recorded yield data enables you to make the best decisions regarding seeding and fertilizer rates
  • Gather the necessary information to create accurate prescription maps
  • Collect data on averages, site-specific yield information, grain loss, grain temperature, etc.
  • GPS referenced markers allow you to save points of interest throughout a field for later viewing (rocks, field conditions, weeds, etc.)
  • Get the data you need to estimate profit and make business decisions: crop moisture, crop temperature, Bu/ac- (instant and averages)

Product Spotlight

Ag Leader's owner, Al Myers, brought to market the first commercially- successful, on-the-go yield monitor, the Yield Monitor 2000, in 1992. Since then, its built on its mission of empowering growers to collect actionable data for decision making. It's always been about yield monitoring data accuracy for Ag Leader and that attention to detail and quality is recognized.

Ag Leader's industry-leading yield monitor is available in its full-featured InCommand™ displays, and now offers a simplified calibration process to cut calibration loads in half. In addition to high-resolution yield mapping, InCommand displays offer unmatched data visibility in the cab and on the go. When paired with AgFiniti®, growers can easily share yield maps, field coverage and guidance lines directly to the iPad, phone or other displays across the entire operation.

Product SpotlightPRECISION PLANTING

YieldSense, the yield monitor from Precision Planting is the most accurate easiest calibrating yield monitor on the market. YieldSense only requires one calibration load per crop vs three to five per variety or moisture or any other variable that changes throughout the year for other brands.

YieldSense requires no time-consuming re-calibrations to get accurate results. All other yield monitors on the market today require re-calibrating any time test weight, moisture content or varieties change to give you accurate results. Do you have time to re-calibrate your yield monitor multiple time a day? Can you afford to have inaccurate yield maps that you are basing input buying decisions on? Are you using your yield maps that could be off as much as 15-20% just because you changed varieties to pick the best hybrid to plant next year? Using a inaccurate yield monitor could cost you big time make the switch today! See website for more information.

Product Spotlight

With Yield Monitoring, you can map and compare the performance of different seed varieties throughout your field. Improve seed selection based on yield data over multiple years.

In-Field Yield Monitoring

During harvest, you can accurately view, map, and record crop yield and moisture data in real-time to instantly understand how well your crop performed. Functionality is dependent on which Trimble display you use.

Variety Tracking - Map and compare the performance of different seed varieties throughout your field.

Moisture Tracking - Determine if grain needs to be stored or dried based on the in-field moisture content.

Load Tracking - Record the amount of grain harvested and loaded onto your trucks.

Auto-cut Width - Adjust the cut width automatically when traveling over odd-shaped fields, point rows, or other previously harvested areas to improve the accuracy of yield calculations.
