Ag Research Portal is in development at the University of Connecticut. Click here to review some screenshots of the new application under development. Using Oracle Apex, combined with Oracle Spatial Studio and Autonomous Transaction Database in the Oracle Cloud, the application runs close to the database and offers rich geospatial and reporting features. The application will be connected to Oracles IDCS for Administrator access, and have a custom users table for Farmer Access.
Improved Yield Prediction of Winter Wheat
In recent years, the use of remotely sensed and on-ground observations of crop fields, in conjunction with machine learning techniques, has led to highly accurate crop yield estimations. In this work, we propose to further improve the yield prediction task by using Convolutional Neural Networks (CNNs) given their unique ability to exploit the spatial information of small regions of the field.
