Time management is a critical component of harvest preparation - when a grower has multiple fields to stage, knowing where to prioritize first is key. Mature canola crops are challenging to navigate through and a common workaround to gauge staging readiness includes perimeter scouting, or evaluating seed color change and degree of dry down along the edges of the field.

"It was a good reminder that seeding date order doesn't always lead to harvest date order. The NDVI values by field provided a very useful guide for prioritizing the fields for scouting and ended up being very accurate to what was actually showing in the field for dry down."
