Yield Editor Software v.1 (Original Version)

Yield Editor Software v.2 (Includes Automated Features)

Yield map development is complicated by the myriad errors that exist in raw yield data. Researchers report somewhere between 10% and 50% of raw yield data observations contain significant errors. Clearly, these errors must be corrected or removed before using yield data for precision management. Yield Editor is a flexible tool designed to assist researchers, crop consultants and producers with identification, documentation and removal of common errors. It provides a number of both manual and automated techniques for error detection and removal, and includes maps and statistics that update in real-time, helping users better appreciate the cause and effect that various error sources can have on their data.

Yield Editor was developed as part of the CSWQRU's research effort in precision agriculture.  The project Sustainable Intensification of Grain and Biomass Cropping Systems using a Landscape-Based GxExM Approach includes current related research.

 

Management Zone Analyst Software

MZA is a software program designed to assist researchers, crop consultants, and producers with the process of sub-field management zone delineation for site-specific crop management. Prior to zone delineation, MZA calculates descriptive statistics for the variables used in the zone delineation process. The software uses unsupervised fuzzy classification to create potential management zones. To determine the appropriate number of management zones for a given field, two measures of cluster performance are calculated by MZA in the post-classification analysis.
