Yield Maps

319

Situation:

Growers can use TerrAvion imagery to create management zones that correspond to actual plant growth. In this example, the early season vigor map (left) corresponds closely with the end-of-season yield map (right), while the black outline of the soil-based management zones (right) is only loosely correlated with the yield maps. Vigor-based zone maps are critical to defining meaningful management zones in crops in which vigor is closely correlated with yield, and are especially useful in fields lacking soil maps and/or fields with poor quality yield maps.

Action:

Use vigor maps to create management zones and evaluate real time performance of your fields and to inform all management actions. While yield maps are a trusted form of data for end of season crop performance evaluation, they are of limited value as an in-season management tool.
