QuestionTowards the end of harvest, my yield monitor was not as accurate as it was when I first calibrated it. How can I get accurate readings all season?

AnswerKey factors that affect accuracy throughout the harvest season are crop moisture and grain flow rates changes caused by yield and speed variations. If the average yield/speed is different when compared to original calibration, adding a calibration load/loads at the currently yield/speed should improve the calibration.

If moisture is significantly different compared to the original calibration, making a second harvest product and completely recalibrating is normally the best option. Example; a corn high moisture can be created for moisture above 18-20%, and corn low moisture can be created for anything below 18-20%.
