Understanding, Analyzing, and Decision Making from Mapped Yield Data

Yield monitoring and mapping is by far the most popular precision agriculture practice around the planet. It provides invaluable information on both, scale and location of variability, in crop fields. Yet, farmers and practitioners struggle to translate ‘data’ collected via yield mapping into ‘information’ to ‘decision’ making. This presentation will walk you through the process of yield mapping, calculating instantaneous yields, eliminating errors in yield map, and transforming multiple years of yield data into decision maps.
