This week Ken goes through the decision making processes he uses to determine whether or not it is safe to start planting corn.
Over the next few weeks our segments will focus on; infield diagnostics, planter settings, the importance on running the right down pressure, closing wheel assembly, and adjusting to row cleaners to achieve uniform seeding depth and seed to soil contact.

This week’s session walks you through identifying management zones. As yield monitors become more prevalent, many of our clients are moving into variable rate, the importance of properly identifying management zones is greatly intensified.
In this episode Isaac further examines properly setting the legend and the pitfalls of Kriged data when attempting to identify management zones.
In this episode Crop-Tech Consulting Agronomist, Isaac Ferrie, shows how using kriged or smoothed yield data can actually hide discrepancies or flaws in the yield data and misrepresent the precision of the monitor calibration process.
