Setting the yield goal using a layer and calculator/expression in the ARN tool:
- User can use a layer and an expression calculation to set the yield goal.
- Yield Goals can be calculated using other layers such as MYYA layers and associated attributes.
- Setting a YieldTarget as an attribute is more customizable, but requires time.
- Setting the Yield at the cropzone level customizes the yield to a particular field and is quicker, but is just a flat yield for the field.
- Setting the Yield in your calculator is a little more customizable, but requires knowledge of calculators and how to incorporate them into your script.
- Setting the Yield goal using the expression in a script is customizable, but we have to be sure all fields have the appropriate attribute the expression is guided towards.
- There are several options as detailed or general as you would need.
