Abstract

Availability of detailed multi-year remote sensing image sequences allows finding a relation between the measured features of vegetation condition history and agricultural yields. The large image sequence over 10 years is used to build and compare 4 yield prediction models. The models are developed trough gradual addition of complexity. The initial model is based on linear regression using vegetation indices. The final model is non-linear and takes into consideration long-term technological advances in agricultural productivity. The accuracy of models has been estimated using cross-validation method. Further ways for model accuracy improvement have been proposed.
