The main aim of this article is to evaluate the possibility of forage yield maps creating based on mowing machine’s conditioner power input measurement. Strong spatial dependence was observed for conditioner power input data. For the data file from material feed rate measurement the medium spatial dependence was calculated. Relatively low value of variograms range is possible to explain by the type of chosen exponential model. Visual displaying of data distribution is done by the maps. These maps were plotted under kriging method. It is possible to observe distributions of higher and smaller values of conditioner power input and material feed rate measurement by this way. Plotted maps are shown in Figures. The correlation coefficients were calculated 0.419 for filtered data. It follows from this evaluation that conditioner power input measurement can be used for the determination of mowing machine material feed rate.Keywords:
