Yield Monitor Calibration
$300 per crop, plus $1.50 per mile. Appointment only. Limited availability.
A VRP staff member will assist in calibration of your yield monitor. We will bring a weigh wagon to your farm and make the proper adjustments to obtain accurate yield information. Accurate yield data enhances decision-making and greatly facilitates prescription soil mapping.
Yield Map Cleanup on Calibrated Monitor
$0.75 per acre
To obtain a more detailed and accurate yield map, raw data must be cleaned from yield monitors to remove overlap and false data. Eventually, multiple years of data can be combined to provide an in-depth view of field yield potential.
Zone Soil Testing and Variable Rate Mapping
$6.00 per acre
Includes zone soil testing, yield map cleanup, variable rate map for one input and zone map. Up to two extra additional variable rate maps are $1.00 each.
