You can use fieldmargin to record your yields at harvest time. This works for crops, hay making, silage, fruit and more.

Recording your yields is valuable to record farm performance from year to year and across fields. This is helpful to understand if your management decisions are paying off and where changes might be needed. Yield recording allows you to record how much you have harvested from your fields. This allows you to compare the inputs and work that went into production to the output and to track performance across different years and fields.

Once you have recorded this data you can also analyse yield data with reports on web. This includes calculating farm total yield, comparing performance across fields and calculate your gross-margins across your farm

Yield recording is included in the Essentials plan and above. You can find out more about pricing and upgrading here.

Set up a Harvesting Field Job

Go to make a Field Job and then select the job type ‘Harvesting’ or ‘Hay/silage making’

  • Tap on the "Add Field Job" button at the bottom of the map screen

  • Choose the job type ‘Harvesting’ or ‘Hay/silage making’

Set up or select an Output

The Output is what you will be harvesting. For example, wheat, hay bales or apples. Each Output needs a unit for example tonnes for crops or set to count if you are recording something like the number of bales.

  • If you haven’t recorded harvests before you will get a prompt to set up all your farm Outputs based on your field usages to make this faster. Just select the correct unit for each field use.

  • If you have already set up your outputs you can select an output by tapping the drop down menu. You can also add a new output.

Add fields and Job details

  • Add the field or fields you would like to add to the job by selecting the field name from the list or by clicking on the field on the map.

  • Optional: Add a due date by inputting a date and time. When you set a due date you will automatically set a reminder on your phone 30 minutes before the job is due.

Viewing your field reports

You can easily check what the yield was for a field by going to the Reports tab on field view.

  • Select a field from the field list or by tapping it on the map.

  • Tap the Reports tab

  • This shows you all of your inputs and outputs for that field for the Farm Year that you are viewing. You can tap on a row to expand it and see the jobs that contributed to the total.
