Abstract

See full text

A method for predicting field specific crop yield recommendations for a field may be accomplished using a server computer system that is configured and programmed to receive over a digital communication network, electronic digital data representing agricultural data records, including remotely sensed spectral property of plant records and soil moisture records. Using digitally programmed data record aggregation instructions, the computer system is programmed to receive digital data representing including remotely sensed spectral property of plant records and soil moisture records. Using the digitally programmed data record aggregation instructions, the computer system is programmed to aggregate the one or more digital agricultural records to create and store, in computer memory, one or more geo-specific time series over a specified time. Using the digitally programmed data record aggregation instructions, the computer system is programmed to select one or more representative features from the one or more geo-specific time series and create, for each specific geographic area, a covariate matrix in computer memory comprising the representative features selected from the one or more geo-specific time series. Using mixture linear regression instructions, the computer system is programmed to assign a probability value to a component group in a set of parameter component groups, where each component group within the set of parameter component groups includes one or more regression coefficients calculated from a probability distribution and an error term calculated from a probability distribution. Using distribution generation instructions, the computer system is programmed to generate the probability distributions used to determine the one or more regression coefficients and the error term, the probability distribution used to generate the error term is defined with a mean parameter set at zero and a variance parameter set to a field specific bias coefficient.
