Yield Prophet® performance in 2017 locations

To test the ability of Yield Prophet to predict wheat yield.

Key messages
  • Yield prophet under predicted the final grain yield of Mace (3.9 t/ha) at Hart in 2017.
  • Lack of rainfall during the season meant the difference between 20% and 80% of years was only 0.5 t/ha towards the end of the season.
