App Store Description

More accuracy, better data collection, analysis and storage – in an instant.

The Beet Guru is an exciting new app that makes yield assessments of fodder beet much simpler.

The app calculates a mean drymatter yield from fresh weights entered, provides a statistically valid upper and lower range of yields and simplifies the storage and reporting of this information.

The Beet Guru is simple and easy to use. All your grower and paddock details are stored within each assessment and you are provided with a detailed report via email at the end of the process.

The Technical Details

The accurate measurement of fodder beet yield is technically difficult. This is predominantly 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 pressures. Variable yield estimates make accurate forage allocation difficult, which is especially critical during transition feeding.

Beet Guru is a tool which allows individual estimates of yield from paddock assessment to be combined into a mean with 95% confidence intervals calculated. This tool is valuable because it:
- Describes the accuracy with which yield is being stated (i.e. with an estimated 24 tonne average yield, and 95% confidence that the true mean lies between 20 and 28 tonne). This helps put yield estimated into statistical context.

- Allows you to make decisions in the field on the number of samples to be taken. For example, by increasing the number of samples taken, a more accurate estimate of yield can be determined. You could choose to do a few more samples while still in the paddock to achieve the desired confidence interval.

- Provides a reporting function which can be utilised from the field improving efficiency and
speeding up reporting time.

- Provides a live record of the crop you are managing and allows you to benchmark your
results against regions and over years.
