  • If your Yield Data is on a memory stick or USB, save and copy the yield files to your computer for compressing.

  • Zip together each crop type for each season for each farm.

Step 1: Compress (zip) files

  • Select the files you want to zip together by holding down the Ctrl key while left clicking on each file in turn with your mouse.

  • Release Ctrl and right click on one of the selected files.

  • Hover over Send To, then select Compressed (zipped) folder.

  • If you're using a Mac, details on zipping files can be found here

  • You can zip together multiple farms, seasons, and crop.

  • Each zip file cannot be bigger than 250MB.

  • ISO, CNH and John Deere yield folder names must follow the naming convention of:
    ISO files - in a zip file called TASKDATA
    CNH files - in a zip file with any name ending in .cn1
    John Deere files - in a zip file called called RCD

Step 2: Upload your yield data

  • If you haven't already, contact your Account Manager to activate Yield Data to access Yield Data functionality.

  • Click on Review icon on the left hand menu - Select Yield

  • Click the +Add Yield at the top right of your map.

  • Select your season and your farm then click on Next

  • You can either drag the zip files to the grey zone or you can click choose file(s) and browse to the directory in which the files are saved.

  • If you have previously uploaded the data file - for another Farm and Season combination - you don't need to upload it again. Select Previously Processed Files at the top of the box to see the files you've already uploaded.

  • Expand the Yield season and farm by clicking on >.

  • Select the file that contains the Farm and Season you selected by ticking the box next to it.

  • Once you've selected one or more zip files click on Process Yield to finish the upload

  • The yield upload process can take minutes or hours, depending on the size of the files.

  • Once processing has been completed, click on Imagery icon on the left hand menu - select Yield
    Select Gridded or Contoured, season and crop type to view yield image on the map

Tips and tricks:

  • Make sure your farm boundaries are set up in DecipherAg before uploading yield data. Read more on how to do this here.

  • The folder is /Yield/Year/Farm

  • Files from different yield monitors can be uploaded at the same time
