Timing is a critical determinant of crop yield. Crop-management activities such as planting, fertilizer application, and harvest must be properly timed to achieve desired yield levels. This is because a crop does not express the same needs as it grows from planting to maturity, but rather goes through different growth stages that determine how it should be managed. We call these growth stages and their timings of occurrence “phenology.”
How important is phenology for yield and what are the main factors influencing it? This whitepaper attempts to answer these questions and demonstrate how CIBO’s data-driven simulation tool takes the characteristics of the crop and its environment into account to estimate the timing of key growth stages.
