Data Yields: Using New Climate FieldView™ Harvest Features
October 23, 2017
Harvest season is now in full swing throughout much of the country, and it’s a great time to start thinking about how you will use the harvest data you are gathering in your Climate FieldView™ account. This data can help you to break down and understand seed performance across every area of your field. It can also guide your seed purchase decisions as you plan your planting strategy for the coming year.

So, first things first. Your harvest data is more meaningful when you have planting data to compare it to. If you have not uploaded your planting data, you can do it now with the Climate FieldView™ data inbox. Learn more.
Here are three Climate FieldView™ features to help you gather and analyze harvest data:

You’ll also find helpful new harvest-related features available in the FieldView™ Cab app. They include:
- Post-harvest yield adjustments – Make data as accurate and useful as possible and easily adjust yield data to match your elevator tickets. This feature will also be available in the full app soon. Learn more.
