Global Yield Monitoring System Market Overview
Yield monitors are a mature technology which allow producers to quantify local yield variations caused by soil properties, fertility management, weather, or other crop management factors. By recording instantaneous yield along with a GPS location, yield monitors produce a visual indication of yield trends across fields. When collected and analyzed over multiple years, yield data can support changes in crop management practices that result in increased yields and reduced yield variability. Yield data collected during harvest is stored internally on the yield monitor display. Yield monitoring refers to a process of precision which provides information related to yield productivity to the farmers. The system is basically used for monitoring various factors which include effect of weather, pesticides, soil properties and fertilizers required for crop production. The yield monitor consist of task monitor which serves several functions within a yield monitoring system including: providing a visual interface for the user, storing yield data to a removable storage disk, managing sensor calibration and diagnosing any sensor problems.
Several secondary sensors exist on a complete yield monitoring system to help ensure quality data collection. Crop yields vary based on many factors. Yield maps can help identify where the areas of high variability and can help producers begin to identify factors that are driving yield variability. These include adding drainage where necessary, placing hybrids in soil conditions, implementing site specific soil sampling and variable rate fertilizer technologies.
Market Size & Forecast
The global yield monitoring system market is anticipated to record a significant CAGR over the forecast period i.e. 2019-2027. The market is segmented on the basis of application into variable rate application, crop scouting, field mapping and others, out of which field mapping segment accounts for leading market share on the back of real time availability of farm information by which farmers can evaluate the adverse condition during the production of crop. Additionally, adoption of advanced technology such as Internet of Things (IoT) helps to yield monitoring system easily accessible. The calibration of these devices is highly precise and accurate. These factors are expected to drive the market over the forecast period.
Cost Efficient Technology
Precision agriculture technology is used to improve farm management which provides detailed, timely and site-specific farm production information. These information helps in substantial reduction in cost due to valuable inputs pertaining to fertilizers, chemicals, seeds and fuel. According to USDA’s Agricultural Resource Management Survey 2018, four technologies are the most commonly used: yield mapping, soil mapping, auto-guidance machinery steering, and variable rate technologies (VRT), out of which yield mapping system highly reduces the cost of crop management. Further, due to its advanced technical feature and low processing cost, the market is expected to witness growth over the forecast period.
Advancement in Technology
There are various mapping software such as yield mapping, VRT technologies and other advanced technique which increase the profitability, sustainability and productivity of crops. The new technologies offer better insight to identify and impart the information to farmers. Smart agriculture techniques such as adoption of Artificial Intelligence (AI), Global Positioning System (GPS), Satellite imagery and data analytics to optimize the crop yield leads to increase the output of crop and decrease the losses in crop production. The demand for food is increasing, with the increasing population across the globe has further enhance the pressure on farmers to produce large amount of crops. These factors are expected to boost the market growth over the forecast period.
The yield monitoring system requires technological knowledge to understand the functioning of system which further requires skilled farmers. Furthermore, low awareness about the system and lack of utilization of yield data for management is expected to limit the market growth in near future.
