The farmer is now able to see the expected yield from winter wheat or maize fields throughout the growing season – allowing input into the fields to be adjusted accordingly. It is also possible to view a map showing yield distribution in a field, making it easy to see which areas are doing well and which might need an extra input during the growing season. All this happens via the yield forecast function in CropManager.
Yield predictions at national and regional levels have been used by nations for many years. What is new is that CropManager now provides Danish crop farming with access to yield forecasts for individual fields throughout the growing season. In this way the planned treatments, in and between fields, can be adjusted in response to the expected yields that are predicted based on what the forecast model has until now "seen" from space. Maps in the form of yield maps, weed maps, soil maps, etc., are often subject to over-interpretation. It is important therefore that forecast maps are supported by advice and training in order to prevent over-reaction. It would help if the forecast could be based on an uncertainty map. Once the forecast model has looked at several fields and developed a degree of certainty, it really becomes of interest to the farmer, as automated optimisation and adjustment of future planned treatment then becomes possible. This means greater peace of mind for the farmer, and consultants are able to consider and optimise production at a higher level.
