Although a historic yield map will not match the future output of a field in every scenario, the historical high and low potential zones of your field will be relatively consistent. As such, Yield maps represent an excellent base on which you can create field specific management zones. With SKYFLD, you can easily upload your historical yield maps and use them to create application maps.
