Growers are collecting many forms of spatial data for their fields including yield, elevation, and soils data. Highly accurate GPS systems along with advances in variable rate technology (VRT) are allowing growers to create and use variable rate planting prescriptions to optimize yields and seed placement. Finding the key measureable parameters determining soybean seed yield in Wisconsin and using them to create VRT prescriptions are the objectives of this research.
