In-Field Measurements for a Yield Prediction Model

In-Field Measurements for a Yield Prediction Model in the Smart Farm

Olds College is collecting a data package of weather information and crop measurements for Metos Canada to validate their yield calculator, and provide additional measurements to further develop the algorithm into a crop growth model. The data package includes weather station measurements by hour (air temp., relative humidity, global radiation, wind speed & direction, soil moisture & temperature, precipitation, leaf wetness), nitrogen soil sample results, gravimetric measurement of soil water, soil texture, and weekly crop staging, biomass measurements, nitrogen testing of tissue samples and grain yield measurements.
