Because cotton yield monitors are a relatively new precision farming technology, growers lack information about the ownership costs of a yield monitoring information system. This cost information is useful for evaluating what returns are required from the use of spatial yield information in management decision making to cover the costs of gathering and analyzing yield data. CYMIDA is an interactive computerized decision aid that is designed to help you evaluate the yield gains and input savings required to pay for investment in a cotton yield monitoring system.
CYMIDA was developed by the Agricultural Economics Production Economics Analysis Group at the University of Tennessee with funding from Cotton Incorporated.
