This yield mapping technology incorporates ultrasonic distance sensors mounted in front of the pickup on a hay baler to accurately measure windrow size (volume) during on-the-go harvest. The measurement is then correlated to bale weight. In addition, it allows for the creation of crop yield maps – spatially quantifying low- and high-yielding areas – to be used for making management decisions. Ultimately, this approach produces improved evaluation of crop management strategies, creation of management zones within a farm, and evaluation of hay crops for insurance purposes.
