Most farmers don’t need a yield monitor to tell them their soils are anything but uniform. They know one area of a field may respond differently than another even if they receive the exact same inputs, including water. Until recently, that didn’t much matter. Growers were locked into uniform rates of seed, fertilizer, herbicides, insecticides and even water across their whole field due to the limitations on being able to alter their application rates.
