Yield Engine provides forecasts on harvest moisture predictions. Harvest moisture predictions are shown by set moisture percentages and date ranges for when a mature crop will hit the targeted moisture percentage. The targeted moisture percentages differ for each crop in Morning Farm Report. For example, corn shows moisture percentages of 22.5%, 18.5%, and 15.5% and soybean shows 20%, 16%, and 13%. Having access to harvest moisture percentages, field by field, allows for improved harvest logistics. Figure 1 below shows the predicted harvest moisture percentages for a corn field. You are able to see the targeted moisture percentages and associated date ranges for when the crop is likely to dry down to that target.
Harvest moisture predictions depend heavily on the planting date. To change the planting date for the field, visit Field Story.
