Yield Monitoring

By gocrossmedia August 25, 2016

During harvest, you can accurately view, map, and record crop yield and moisture data in real-time to instantly understand how well your crop performed. Functionality is dependent on which Trimble display you use.

Variety Tracking

  • Map and compare the performance of different seed varieties throughout your field.

Moisture Tracking

  • Determine if grain needs to be stored or dried based on the in-field moisture content.

Load Tracking

  • Record the amount of grain harvested and loaded onto your trucks.

Auto-cut Width

  • Adjust the cut width automatically when travelling over odd-shaped fields, point rows, or other previously harvested areas to improve the accuracy of yield calculations.

In-office Yield Analysis

  • Think of your yield map as an assessment of your crop. You can import your yield map into Farm Works Software® to view and assess the performance of your fields.
  • Identify high- and low-performance areas, determine the best seed variety for your farm, reconcile yield maps with the actual load ticket data, and generate reports.


  • The assessment of your crop yield will help you develop a plan for your fields the next year. Use the yield map within Farm Works Software to determine why your crop performed the way it did and design a strategy for the land prep and planting season.
  • Create prescription maps for variable rate application, budget your seed, chemical, and/or fertiliser costs, and create a plan for optimal water management.
