2020 Convention session – Machine Learning and Crop Modeling: A Modern Affair?
This session on machine learning and crop modeling aired live at the virtual 2020 CGIAR Convention on Big Data in Agriculture.
Several efforts have been developed recently to integrate (deep) Machine Learning (ML) algorithms into crop models to result in better predictions and inform adaptation strategies. In this session our speakers present the current work they are developing to link training genetic data to crop models to improve predictions and facilitate genomic selection for upstream crop management support. Some examples of image analysis and phenotyping using ML linked to crop models are presented. After the presentation, our panelists open up a discussion about the role of ML in crop modeling.
