Your Field View Pre-Harvest Homework



Though the weather hasn’t been ideal for finishing crops, there is some important pre-harvest homework you can get done. If you’re using Climate Field View, now is the time to get set up to record accurate data once the combines are ready to roll.

Field View Pre-Harvest Checklist:

  1. Make sure your iPad’s software and cab app is updated to the latest version. This allows you access to the most recent features. You can also fix bugs and other issues found with previous versions.
  2. Double check your equipment is setup with the correct measurements for header width and style. This measurement is in inches and is a frequent issue when your acres are way off.
  3. Calibrate your combines in the first few loads of the season. This calibration will also help to make your numbers as accurate as possible.
  4. Contact me if you need additional drives or wiring harnesses. The correct hardware is key.

Here’s a handy pre-harvest reference sheet from our friends at Field View. Print this and bring it with you when you’re in the field this fall.
