Harvest Technology

Harvest Technology is an important component of a precision agriculture program. This technology includes sensors and other components installed on harvesting equipment to measure crop mass flow and provide spatial yield estimates within a field. Grain and cotton yield monitors are some of the most commonly utilized harvest technologies in row-crop production. Yield maps generated from yield monitor data provides valuable information to growers on spatial yield variability and how management decisions can be adjusted to maximize productivity across the whole field.
