The Beet Guru® is an exciting app that makes undertaking yield assessments of fodder beet much simpler.
The accurate measurement of fodder beet yield is technically difficult. This is primarily because as a precision sown crop, gaps are inevitable and lead to increased yield variation across the paddock. Gaps may result from poor or zero seed placement, failure of a seed to germinate or failure of a germinating seed to establish due to environmental or insect pressures. Variable yield estimates make accurate forage allocation difficult, which is especially critical during transition feeding.
The Beet Guru is a tool that allows individual estimates of yield from paddock assessment to be combined into a mean with 95% confidence intervals calculated.
We’ll send you all your reports as a PDF attachment via email with a subject header. This includes grower and paddock details. All the details of the assessment will then be saved within the app, with updates to assessments possible should drymatter results change after bulbs have been sent for drymatter evaluation.
