Gain greater insight on your fields with Ag Leader’s yield monitoring system
Because you’ve invested a considerable amount of time and money into growing a crop, shouldn’t you know what the results are at harvest? Of course, you should. By adding the Ag Leader yield monitoring system to your combine, you can gain valuable insights into the productivity and yield of your crops.
5 key benefits
There are several benefits to the Ag Leader yield monitoring system. Here are five.
- Accurate data. Data is recorded based on the number of rows being harvested, which provides more accurate data.
- Yield and moisture mapping. Create and view yield and moisture maps while harvesting and instantly observe how field conditions affect yield. Make year-round management decisions based on this valuable information.
- Hybrid/Variety mapping. Overlay planting maps with real-time harvest to view instant yield and moisture variations by hybrid and varieties in the field (Integra display only).
- Summary screen. View a summary screen to learn immediately the number of acres harvested, total and average bushels harvested, and more.
- InCommand 1200 split-screen. With this feature, you can view a reference layer (e.g., an in-season nitrogen application) side-by-side with the harvesting layer. This allows you to see, in real time, what impact the earlier activity may have had on harvest.
Moisture, test weight, and grain volume are just a few variables that can trip up even the most high-tech yield monitor system today. But that doesn’t automatically render the data you’re gleaning as you harvest this fall’s crop inaccurate. If you calibrate regularly, considering the variables, you’ll still get a clear picture of the grain that’s pouring into the hopper. Yet, many farmers don’t take the necessary time to calibrate these devices correctly to ensure that quality data is being collected.
Ag Leader recognizes that there’s no time to lose when a crop needs to be harvested. With InCommand’s simplified calibration process, you don’t have to sacrifice accuracy for the sake of time.
By studying grain flow dynamics and characteristics on thousands of calibration loads, we were able to maintain accuracy while decreasing the effort needed to calibrate. What that means for farmers is fewer calibration loads, as well as on-screen resettable bushel counters. Ultimately, InCommand’s enhanced calibration algorithm makes it quicker and easier for you to collect quality yield data.
DisplayCast is a feature that provides display-to-display communication among the InCommand 1200 and InCommand 800 displays. Share coverage maps for swath control, guidance lines, field summary information, yield summaries across multiple displays, and planting maps for variety tracking.
Have yield maps as soon as you leave the cab. Wirelessly connect your InCommand display to your iPad with the AgFiniti Mobile App. Leave the cab knowing that the information you need to make decisions is in your hand. Internet not required.
