The Pistachio Predictor provides a tool to assist in making timely crop yield forecasts. This information is useful for pistachio growers and related industries to better plan the harvest and manage the market.
Using past pistachio yield data, we can identify generalized patterns between crop yield and the associated seasonal environmental and agronomic conditions. These patterns can then be used to build a model to predict future crop yields.
Funding for this project was provided by a California Department of Food and Agriculture Specialty Crop Block Program.
