Analyzing Yield Data Using Granular Insights
Now that the harvest season is wrapping up, it’s time to take a look at our harvest data. At Hoegemeyer, we use Granular Insights as our digital ag program. Once you have an account, there are multiple ways to get your data into the system. You can manually bring in data using a jump drive or make a connection to MyJohnDeere, AgFiniti or CaseIH. Once the data is loaded into Granular Insights, there are multiple ways to view your data.
The first option to analyzing your data is the Lasso Tool. This allows you to select different spots in a field and analyze them. In (figure 1) you can see there are two products and 12 acres inside the selected area. The lasso tool allows you to draw freeform, a polygon, a circle or a rectangle.
The second option for analyzing data is the summary tab or the newly released 'Analyze' in the Beta version. This feature allows you to create a custom view and report. The summary/analyze tab gives you a quick analysis of yield by field, product or soil type.
(Figure 2) feature an example of the Summary tab. In this example you will see yield by product and sorted high to low.
Figure 3 is the new Analyze tab. It is also showing yield by product but you will notice the different drop options to customize how you want to view the data. Once you have it the way you like, you're able to click the boxes and generate a report.
The third option for analyzing data is the Insights tab where you can run head-to-head comparisons. This provides the option to run variety comparison, field analysis, seeding rate analysis, soil analysis and planting date. The Insights tab also gives you harvest moisture analysis. (Figure 4) shows the comparison of 8110 AM vs 8009 AM.
With these tools from Granular Insights, it is so easy to view data in multiple ways. These tools allow us to understand what worked and what didn’t work and why. Many factors go into yield data and sometimes an overall yield of a product doesn’t give the whole story.
For more information or questions, please reach out to your local DSM or myself.
