Fall Case Study
Making Hybrid Selection Using Yield Data
The map below was created with a PF 3000 Monitor, Global Positioning (GPS) and Geographic Information Systems (GIS). Precision farm technology uses GPS and GIS to gather data that can help you choose a better performing hybrid. The map represents 2 different hybrids. The yield difference between the two hybrids is 54 bushels/acre. Assume $2 / bushel for the corn price. Which hybrid would you choose next planting season?
