GPS Yield Mapping and GPS crop yield data creates massive amounts of data for farms and fields. Willington Crop Services can manage GPS yield mapping data highlighting the important differences in GPS crop yield in fields rather than every difference.A Case Study of GPS yield mapping and GPS crop yield is used highlight this service. An Essex farmer wanted Willington Crop Services to 'make sense' out of all yield mapped data.The combine collected data was interpreted to highlight the important field/ crop/ farm differences. Such as rabbit duck grazed area that reduced yields by >3t/ha.Lower yielding area in peninsular of west field: rabbit damage. Heaviest yielding areas identified.Areas that consistently yielded higher, medium or lower yields over several years, can be seen on maps compiled from several years data.Reasons why a farmer may want this service are varied. Frommaking sense of the massive data set from yield combines, farmers dont want or need 'pretty' maps of all the differences, but farmers need maps that are useful for management. Or larger acreages means less office time. Or lack of time means farmer unable to focus on maps himself. Or need to utilise data collected.
