Improvement of the CST (CGMS Statistical Tool) for yield forecasting

CGMS statistical tool (CST) is a statistical tool for yield forecasting by using both regression estimation and scenario analysis. Originally developed for using yield indicators provided by crop growth models such as CGMS, the tool can also be used with remote sensing derived yield proxies such as biophysical indicators or rainfall estimates. The tool includes a module for importing time series of such proxies directly from RUM files produced with SPIRITS.
A contract has been signed with Alterra (Nl) for the improvement of the JRC tool CST. In the improved version expected for early 2017, this RUM file importer will be fully integrated in the tool and management and temporal accumulation of data imported from SPIRITS will be simplified.
More information on the initial development of the tool can be found here:
