Yield Monitor setup and calibration service by Matt Maess
Last week we announced the launch of the beta version of AGvisorPRO’s Expert Services Marketplace. We’ve said that the power of AGvisorPRO is its network of experts. What better way to showcase their expertise than to profile the many ways they can bring value to your farm? Starting this week, we will discuss how they can benefit your farm.
This week we’re talking about Matt Maess’ combine yield monitor setup and calibration service. Matt is a precision Ag specialist based out of Saskatchewan, Canada. He will help you get your combine monitor setup for collecting your yield data. For just $165 per setup, you can expect Matt to help with the setup and calibration of CNH (PRO600/PRO700) or John Deere yield monitors.

Top Question of the Week:
This week’s top question concerns something unusual showing up on a grower’s corn. Here’s what the farmer asked:

The $H!T you need to know: Managing Horseweed
Horseweed, Mares Tail, or Fleabane: whatever you call it, it can be a real pain in the you know what to control in no-till & minimum till situations. So the guys at Agronomists Happy Hour felt it appropriate to bring this question back from June in the AGvisorPRO app back during harvest time because the best control measure for this weed is a good fall burndown.
In this episode, they lay out their preferred strategy, from fall burndown to in-crop next year, and how to manage this weed in wheat.
What's Coming Next?
Coming soon is our “View All Experts” experience. This will allow users to look through our entire database of experts, sorting by expertise and location. Previously, experts were hidden throughout the app in question replies, but not all accessible unless you knew which name to search. Stay tuned for that later next week.
As mentioned last week, “Expert services” is in beta testing and currently available on our website here. Experts, add your services before we make them live in the app! That’s all for this week, but the product is on its way to making some significant changes in the coming weeks, so stay tuned for next week’s update.
