The FBN ® Crop Moisture Map shows the crop moisture percentage throughout your field at the time of harvest. The color range on the map varies between light blue/green to dark blue. Dark blue areas represent higher moisture percentage while light blue/green areas represent a lower moisture percentage. Although the same colors will appear on each crop moisture map, the range of values and percentage of moisture is limited to the selected field and will vary from field to field.

The FBN ® Drydown Percent Map shows the percent moisture reduction needed to reach the standard moisture for your crop. The standard moistures used vary by crop. The color range on the map varies from dark blue to light blue/green. Dark blue areas require more moisture reduction while light blue areas need less moisture reduction. Although the same colors will appear on each drydown percent map, the range of values and percentage of drydown percentage is limited to the selected field and will vary from field to field. The colors should not indicate “good” or “bad”, but instead should be understood as more or less moisture reduction needed compared to the rest of the field.

How Do Yield Maps Work In FBN® Maps?

May 13, 2019

The  FBN ®  Yield Map shows crop yield throughout the field at the time of harvest. The color range on the map varies from green to yellow to red. Green areas represent higher yield while red areas represent lower yield and yellow areas are somewhere in between. Although the same colors will appear on each yield map, the range of values and percentage of yield is limited to the selected field and will vary from field to field. The colors should not indicate “good” or “bad” yield, but instead should be understood as higher and lower yield compared to the rest of the field. With FBN Yield Maps you can print the map directly from your FBN Account by clicking the Print Map button Legend The legend is a histogram bar chart with each bar representing the percentage of the field that corresponds to each yield range and color on the map. Red bars represent areas with lower yield, while green bars represent areas with higher yield. Your average yield value is shown above the legend. Title Average Yield over the entire Field Vertical Y-Axis Percentage of Field represented by Yield Range Horizontal X-Axis Yield Ranges

The FBN ®   Seeding Rate Map shows the actual seeding rate that your planter recorded throughout the field. This feature is available to FBN members in the United States and Canada. The color range on the map varies between light yellow to dark green. Dark green areas represent higher seeding rates while light yellow areas represent lower seeding rates. Although the same colors will appear on each seeding rate map, the range of values and seeding rate is limited to the selected field and will vary from field to field. Legend The legend is a histogram bar chart with each bar representing the percentage of the field that corresponds to each seeding rate range and color on the map. Light yellow bars represent areas with lower seeding rates, while dark green bars represent areas with higher seeding rates. Your average seeding rate value is shown above the legend. Title   Average Seeding Rate over the entire Field Vertical Y-Axis   Percentage of Field represented by Seeding Rate Range Horizontal X-Axis   Seeding Rate Ranges

The FBN ® Target Seeding Rate Map shows the seeding rate that you were trying to achieve across your field based on your planting files. This feature is available to FBN members in the United States and Canada. The color range on the map varies between light yellow to dark green. Dark green areas represent higher target seeding rates while light yellow areas represent lower target seeding rates. Although the same colors will appear on each target seeding rate map, the range of values and seeding rate is limited to the selected field and will vary from field to field. Legend The legend is a histogram bar chart with each bar representing the percentage of the field that corresponds to each target seeding rate range and color on the map. Light yellow bars represent areas with lower target seeding rates, while dark green bars represent areas with higher target seeding rates. Your average target seeding rate value is shown above the legend.

The FBN ® Prescription Accuracy Map shows how accurately your planter matched your seeding rate prescription. An accuracy of 100% means that your actual seeding rate exactly matched your prescription. A lower accuracy means your planter missed its target. Currently, this feature is available to FBN members in the United States and Canada. The color range on the map varies between light yellow to dark green. Dark green areas represent higher accuracy while light yellow areas represent lower accuracy. Although the same colors will appear on each prescription accuracy map, the range of values and accuracy is limited to the selected field and will vary from field to field. Legend The legend is a histogram bar chart with each bar representing the percentage of the field that corresponds to each accuracy percentage range and color on the map. Light yellow bars represent areas with lower accuracy percentage, while dark green bars represent areas with higher accuracy percentage. Your average accuracy percentage value is shown above the legend.

The soil temperature map is available to FBN ® members in the United States. The map updates daily to show the average soil temperature from 0-10 cm below the surface. To find FBN's soil temperature map: Log in to fbn.com Click on Analyze Click on My Operation Click on Maps Then, click on Soil Temperature . Use the + and - to zoom the map in and out. Please note that the most recent map available will always have a 3 day lag. For example, if you view the map on March 5th, the current map will reflect soil temperatures from March 2nd.

The FBN ® Soil Type Map shows the distribution of soil types across your field as defined by the NRCS SSURGO database in the U.S., the CANSIS database in Canada and the Atlas database in Australia. The colored areas on the map represent the different soil types as identified in the legend. Legend The legend is a pie chart with each slice representing the percentage of the field that corresponds to a soil type and color on the map. Hover your mouse over a slice to display the soil type and percentage.
