Cotton Yield Monitor Evaluation, South Carolina – Year 2

F.J. Wolak, A. Khalilian, R.B. Dodd, Y. J. Han, M. Keshkin, R.M. Lippert and W. Hair


Initial field testing finds commercially available cotton yield monitors to be a promising technology. However, widespread adaptation is limited because of problems maintaining sensor cleanliness and calibration in the real world cotton-harvesting environment. This paper presents the results of two years testing of Zycom and Micro-Trak yield monitoring systems in South Carolina. A Clemson University patent-pending mounting system to help keep sensors clean and in calibration is also evaluated.
