You mean how to get one field from ST_SummaryStats()? (ST_SummaryStats(rast)).*

You have to UPDATE your table columns with each values returned by ST_SummaryStats().

Is that what you mean?

BTW: do you have a recipe to pass PostGIS rasters to Pl/R? (you are saying you are using R to grab more stats from a tile)
