Yield monitors and yield mapping technology have been available for several decades, but the practice of leveraging the data gathered from these tools to make better farm management decisions is still immature. One critical aspect of using yield data to make beneficial decisions is ensuring data quality. Producing high quality yield data relies on following proper calibration methods, engaging in best practices during harvest operations, and knowing how to post-process yield data to adjust for errors such as lag time, header overlap, and speed changes. Dr. Joe Luck, associate professor at the University of Nebraska - Lincoln, joins the "FarmBits" podcast for this episode to discuss these topics, as well as provide his insights into opportunities created by the modern prevalence of digital yield data. We hope that this episode will bring value to you no matter when you listen to it, but especially if you're in your combine for harvest this fall. "If that data is being used in the future – for analysis, prescriptive maps, nitrogen, whatever – I think it’s worth it, personally, to clean the data." - Joe Luck Joe's E-Mail: jluck2@unl.edu Joe's Twitter: @joeluck_unl E-Mail: farmbits@unl.edu Twitter: @NEDigitalAg Samantha's Twitter: @SamanthaTeten Jackson's Twitter: @jstansell87 Opinions expressed by the hosts and guests on this podcast are solely their own, and do not reflect the views of Nebraska Extension or the University of Nebraska - Lincoln.
