AgLeader INSIGHT Cotton Yield Monitor


Ag Leader first introduced a cotton yield monitor system back in 2000. The field proven system is now available in the Insight display and provides instant on-the-go monitoring of bales per acre for both Case IH and John Deere pickers. The Insight cotton yield monitor provides real-time color yield maps, allowing the grower to see changes in yield as they happen. The yield maps can be overlaid on variety maps recorded during planting giving the grower insights into variety selection. In addition to the map, four user-defined values are displayed. These include, but are not limited to, such values as instantaneous yield, instantaneous cotton flow rate, accumulated cotton weight, total area harvested, fan speed and ground speed.

How It Works

Insight cotton yield monitoring system utilizes multiple optical sensors to measure cotton volumetric flow rates in the chutes. Volumetric flow rates from at least two rows of the cotton picker are measured and are communicated to the Insight display. The Insight display stores accumulated cotton volume for both fields and individual loads along with accumulated harvest areas, weight calibration values and estimated percent lint turnout, to calculate total weights and average yields for fields and loads.

Year-Round Use

With the addition of the cotton yield monitor, the Insight display is now a complete yearround precision farming tool for the cotton grower. The Insight display features SeedCommand™ for control of planting operations, DirectCommand™ for both liquid and granular application, yield monitoring and autosteer with an interface to the Trimble AgGPS® Autopilot system. The SMS™ family of software (Basic, Advanced and Mobile) provides the grower with both office and in-field data management that works seamlessly with the Insight display. In addition, the Insight display can be used for all the growers grain operations as well. Ag Leader’s lineup of precision technology for cotton can help reduce input costs, improve yields and see better bottom line performance all year-round.
