Q: How can I get accurate readings all season?
Question: Towards 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?
Answer: Key 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%.
