Publications Wednesday: even better grain yield forecasts
|Using semi-empirical indices for drought, heat and cold stress measurably improves the accuracy of the C-Crop grain yield forecasting model. Digiscape early-career researcher Yang Chen and colleagues have shown this in a paper just published by Agricultural and Forest Meteorology.
One of the clever features of Dr Chen’s new Crop-SI model is the way it exploits our physiological understanding of crops: the stress indices are computed at the times in the growing season where they will impact on yields.
