Calculators are incredible tools that help you generate recommendation layers using input variables you define based on your agronomic philosophy. This video guides you through the process of building an Excel spreadsheet calculator that includes multiple variables and conditionals. You are provided with the framework to create a successful calculator to meet your unique needs. Use Excel spreadsheet calculators with the Advanced Nutrient Recommendations, Advanced Seed Rate Recommendations, and the Run a Calculator extensions to create recommendation layers that you can export to a field device or new layers for other uses within AgStudio.
In the second video of the Advanced Multi-Year Analysis series, learn how to run the analysis and manage scripts. When you run the analysis, you can save the analysis as surface and/or management zone layers with the option to overwrite previously created layers, layers with a different spatial type, or to not overwrite layers. The results layer can be used in other extensions including those used to create variable rate fertilizer and/or seeding prescriptions. In addition, you learn about the efficiency tools such as copy, import, and export which you can use to manage scripts.
Use the Advanced Multi-Year Yield Analysis extension to define a script that contains the crop, crop years, and analysis parameters that you want to include in a multi-year analysis of yield. After creating the script you can save it for future use and view the results in a variety of ways including raw data, surface data, variance, average, and category. This gives you a complete picture of the yield results of your business decisions. In addition, you can generate a layer that incorporates irrigation zones information.
