Growers with yield mapping equipped CLAAS combines can now analyse their yield maps instantly during or after harvest thanks to a link up between MySOYL (part of MyFarm, Frontier’s farm management platform) and CLAAS’s TELEMATICS system.
As each field is harvested yield and position data is uploaded to the CLAAS TELEMATICS website. In order for this data to be analysed in third party precision data management tools traditionally the data had to be downloaded from the TELEMATICS website. Typically this would be done after harvest.
The new link developed together by SOYL and CLAAS, and set to go live this October, allows this data to be instantly synchronised at any time during or after harvest. For the farmer this means simpler and quicker access to their data and allows the interpretation process to start much earlier.
“Often we are drilling oilseed rape crops straight after harvesting the proceeding crop and there is little time to review yield performance. This new link allows a review to take place seconds after harvesting the field,” explains SOYL’s Commercial Director, Simon Parrington.
MySOYL contains a range of analysis tools to help growers and advisors gain value from yield maps.
Simon continues, “Anything we can do to make the data transfer process simpler makes it easier to access the benefits gained from detailed production data. Customers control the data exchange and the link between MySOYL and CLAAS TELEMATICS can be enabled and disabled at any time using our Connections control panel.”
“We want customers who buy a CLAAS combine to have every possible opportunity to use the data our machines produce, this type of link delivers just that,” concludes Claas UK’s EASY Product Manager, Edward Miller.
The new software link will go live as part of an update to MySOYL this October, following development and testing during harvest 2019.
