A methodology to assess the accuracy and reliability of yield-monitor data* [Full subscriber]

Abstract The ability to accrue full benefits from the adoption of precision agriculture (PA) technologies depends on having complete confidence in the data layers on which decisions are based. Previous research has shown that yield data can reliably show spatial patterns in within-block yield, but the process of filtering, manipulating and attributing yield-sensor data to sugar mill records for the block from which it was derived can have considerable bearing on the utility and reliability of the resultant yield maps. This paper reports on the production of data-handling tools to evaluate, clean and prepare the collected sensor data (harvester position/speed,…
