Is anyone else having issues with yield sense yield data not transferring correctly?

Our soybean yield data has a tendency to transfer higher than actual yields and our corn transfers lower than actual yields. This is an ongoing issue across different platforms.

Transferring to where? Fieldview?

FBN and Farmers edge. It is like they report pre calibrated yields.

Haven't had issue with that myself. FarmersEdge and FBN do some yield data cleaning but that's more to eliminate zero readings on edges of passes and overlap issues.

FarmersEdge for us has produced yield maps but they were significantly elevated compared to actual scale tickets. FBN matched up pretty close to what our actual weights were from field. It's a lot easier to post calibrate FBN vs FarmersEdge IMO.

Any way for you to check harvested acres vs acres in field boundaries? With more prevent plant aces this year those are not taken out in those platforms so your measured lbs may be right but acres are higher in platform than what you planted/harvested so field avg can get messed up pretty easily that way.

Is that with a yield sense yield monitor?

Greenstar and FV drive. The file format between yieldsense and fv drive is the same though so it's same file type.

I'm a precision planting dealer though so I'm quite familiar with the YS. I'd recommend trying to upload the field map data from the 2020 to each platform rather than go through fv and see what you get. There have been numerous issues within my customer base in getting acres between YS and FV to match up this year. The 2020 is the master controller so I'd take the data from that device as most reliable

The 2020 is fine but when I transfer it the yield changes. I just noticed the SMS isn't right either. I just did a post harvest calibration on every field to get it right.

We run two case combines with yield sense installed on both. We’ve always struggled to keep them calibrated from field to field. I’ll have to check and see if maybe that’s our problem. I’m not normally running the combines but always refer to FieldView for the yields. Never been satisfied with yield sense honestly. Thought maybe it was one machine. Then we added the second in 2018 and have had the same problem with both for 2 years now. Frustrations. We’re young guys that know tech and have had many of phone conversations to try to remedy the situation with no success.

Gen 3 displays have definitely been much more of a headache especially when working with FV for us on both YS and planter sides.

Building a new Precision planter this winter with a Gen 3.... that doesn’t make me feel real good now. Hmmm.

Verified FBN Member (NE)

I should clarify that we get things to work with the Gen3 so they are satisfactory but it's not nearly as seamless as it is with the Gen2. FV data transfer is one of those things in that category. I wouldn't be too apprehensive about putting it to work on your custom planter as long as you have enough time to configure it all in detail.

We run two combines with yield sense. One with a gen 1, one with a gen 3. This year the gen 3 was adding 40 bushels per acre to the iPad, but the monitor was correct. Harvested acres also added 1.5 acres per acre harvested. Precision says it’s not their problem, it’s climates problem. Climate says they’ll have a fix by next year. In the mean time we had to pull all data off the 20/20’s, and had climate delete all 19’ harvest data, then reload it

That looked like a lot of work so I just did a post harvest calibration for each field.
