kayad.alfalfa {agridat}R Documentation

Yield monitor data for 4 cuttings of alfalfa in Saudi Arabia.

Description

Yield monitor data for 4 cuttings of alfalfa in Saudi Arabia.

Usage

data("kayad.alfalfa")

Format

A data frame with 8628 observations on the following 4 variables.

harvest

harvest number

lat

latitude

long

longitude

yield

yield, tons/ha

Details

Data was collected from a 23.5 ha field of alfalfa in Saudia Arabia. The field was harvested four consecutive times (H8 = 5 Dec 2013, H9 = 16 Feb 2014, H10 = 2 Apr 2014, H11 = 6 May 2014). Data were collected using a geo-referenced yield monitor. Supporting information contains yield monitor data for 4 hay harvests on a center-pivot field.

# TODO: Normalize the yields for each harvest, then average together # to create a productivity map. Two ways to normalize: # Normalize to 0-100: ((mapValue - min) * 100) / (max - min) # Standardize: ((mapValue - mean) / stdev) * 100
