Yield Data Cleaning & Editing

Picking up where the previous session left off, participants will learn how operator behavior impacts yield monitor data quality and how that data can be “cleaned” using the freely available USDA ARS Yield Editor software. After a brief introduction of why yield data cleaning is crucial to obtaining high-quality data, participants will follow along in hands-on fashion as instructors demonstrate the use of Yield Editor.
