What Happens to My Yield Data in the Web App?

The FarmTRX Web Application is our cloud-based platform where farmers can view, query, interact with and export their yield data. By registering your farm and drawing or importing your field boundaries in the Web App, you create the place where recorded yield data will sort and land once pushed to the cloud via mobile phone or tablet.  

Here’s what happens to your yield data once sent to the Web App… 

Auto-Yield Correction 

FarmTRX leverages years of GIS mapping and tracking expertise to offer an automatic data processing engine that actively detects, filters and corrects anomalous data points, leaving cleaned, accurate yield data and maps. The Web App is where yield cleanup is applied and where farmers can find their yield data. 

The Web App’s auto-corrective process is applied to farmers yield data when synced to the cloud, only if you have an active, annually renewed, subscription to the app. The corrective process identifies and addresses inconsistencies that may have been recorded at harvest, affects like:  

  • Headland turns 
  • Hills 
  • Multiple combines with different calibrations 
  • Unloading points
  • Sharp starts or stops due to plugging 
What If I Don’t Want Yield Maps? 

Farmers who don’t upkeep an active subscription to the Web App will always have full access to their raw yield data recorded by the Yield Monitor. Farmers are the sole owners of their yield data, and have unlimited ability to view, query and export raw data. However, they will have to bring it into another management system to have it corrected into accurate and usable data. 

Auto-Correction In Action 

On a busy harvest day, farmers don’t need to worry about an incorrect or incomplete calibration affecting their ability to get accurate yield data. Rest assured knowing that the Yield Monitor is always recording relative differences in grain travelling on the elevator paddles while harvesting.  

Correlating these differences to actual yield can be done after harvest through the Web App – turning jumbled up yield data into normalized, accurate precision maps in one step.  

Here’s an example of what happens to yield data in the Web App. This Australian farmer calibrated in-field three separate times. User error with each calibration caused the raw yield map to look chopped up with yield variability blanketed over (left).  

Fortunately, miscalibration does not affect the Yield Monitor’s accurate recording of relative yield in the field. In the Web App, the three calibrations were automatically detected and normalized into one true representation of variability across the field (right). By adding the total field takeoff post-harvest, yield variability for the field was associated to real bu/ac. The end result? An accurate, agronomy-ready yield map.

This is what you pay for with yearly subscription to the Web App, automatic yield-correction that takes the record of your data from confusing to clean, corrected and actionable in a matter of minutes – not hours or days.
