Below is an in depth overview of our mobile app feature Recommendations - please reach out to the Support team should you require any further information.
Where can I find Recommendations?
Recommendations can be found on a single dedicated page for fast, easy access and can be accessed by tapping this icon .
The new Recommendations page (released in June 2023) replaces Scouting which has since been retired.
Recommendations will only display for those customers who have this function set up for their selected sites. Customers without Recommendations set will see the below screens.
Rules are best practice guidelines. A set of rules helps to create a recommendation.
What are recommendations?
A recommendation is a set of weather and / or growing conditions that governs when specific on-farm actions should take place, for example, the actions to take when conditions are best for spraying.
What are the recommendations used to determine the number of available spray hours?
In the mobile app, you can click on the information icon at the top of the Recommendations screen to see the detail behind each of the recommendations.
How are the recommendations determined?
The recommendations were developed and agreed with your company's technical team.
What is shown on the first day of the Recommendations screen?
The first day shows the total number of available hours remaining on the current day.
How do I see which hours are available on a specific day?
In the mobile app, tap on the day you wish to view. For example: Tap “Tuesday” at the top of the Recommendations screen, or tap the cell for “Tuesday” on the “Number of Available Hours” to see the full 24 hours for that day. You can then tap on the left and right arrows to see the detail of the previous day or next day.
What do the colours green, red and grey mean?
- Green - means that a particular hour meets the set conditions for spraying.
- Red - means that a particular hour does NOT meet the set conditions for spraying.
- Grey - means that a particular hour or day is not relevant for your spray window. For example, if you don’t spray your crops before sunrise, then pre-dawn hours will show as grey.
Warning signs (!) mean that no data could be retrieved for that hour so it could not be determined whether the hour is available for spraying or not.
Please speak to your technical team or contact The Yield support to provide feedback or to request changes.
