Knowledge brings profit

YieldCheck is an innovative and proven online software system which allows growers to collect data about their crops and produce real-time forecasts of how total or graded yield will develop as the season progresses.

Developed by experts at Cambridge University Farm (now NIAB-CUF, part of NIAB), the YieldCheck system is designed to integrate and add value to information that is already measured in commercial crops (e.g. canopy size and bulking digs) by producing forecasts of yield development.

This intelligence benefits both on-farm and supply-chain profitability. It has been successfully used by growers, agronomists and commercial organisations in the UK, mainland Europe and the USA.

The crop modelling system won the Oxford Farming Conference (OFC) and Royal Agricultural Society of England (RASE) practice with science award in January 2014.
