Beyond yield prediction in greenhouse tomatoes
Added on 10 July 2023
A new whitepaper from WayBeyond, an agriculture software and data management company, outlines a holistic approach to yield forecasting that examines:
- Why solely chasing the holy grail of high accuracy yield prediction isn’t the right approach
- How unexpected yield swings impact prediction accuracy and what causes them
- How interpreting yield prediction with additional contextual data improves decision making
The whitepaper, “Beyond Yield Prediction: The importance of Climate and Context in Tomato Production” was written by two WayBeyond team members:
- Mpatisi Moyo, Head of Artificial Intelligence. Dr. Moyo holds a Master’s in Medical Laboratory Sciences from Massey University, a Post-Graduate Diploma in Statistics and a Ph.D. in Health Sciences from the University of Auckland. He is the Data Science and Artificial Intelligence lead at WayBeyond. His team focuses on combining biology, data, and AI to build prediction and recommendation tools to help growers improve efficiency in their production.
