Project details

The goal of this exciting research project is to develop machine learning (ML) models for continental-scale crop yield prediction which will orders of magnitude faster (10s ms vs. hours) compared to the existing alternatives. We will use the existing extensive international and national datasets to train machine learning models for India-specific crops such as paddy, wheat, corn, and soybeans.

Existing phenomenological and functional crop models are comprehensive but are very time consuming and require specialized software to conduct simulations. These challenges preclude a rapid and extensive ‘what if’ type scenario analysis under time and resource constraints. We will be using the high-performance computing facilities and infrastructure to fully develop machine learning based models for rapid analysis which will be useful to multiple stakeholders from farmers to policy makers.
