Sentera has another tool (that I have not used yet) is tassel count tool. Having a original plant emergence map (and not planted pop map), a tassel count map (plants that survived thru the growing season) and a yield map would take analysis to the next level
That would help, I wonder if there is a way to also factor in the height of the tassel. When I fly over tassels spraying and see very uniform tassel heights, it's usually a very good yield. When they are not uniform, yields are usually less. When taking emergence plots to harvest by hand I see the same. Tassel height and ear placement and therefore ear size is related. Simply counting tassels could give results that are off by 10-30% pretty easily. Ground truthing is still required.
