This imagery was used to predict total carrot root yield in three growing regions at the field level, and to investigate yield variability within those fields.

This research demonstrated high accuracies (up to 95 per cent) using remotely sensed data to predict yield over two growing seasons.

Further research is looking to provide yield forecasts early in the season so remedial actions can be put in place to optimise yield.

Through the Hort Innovation-funded project Adoption of precision systems technology in vegetable production (VG16009), AARSC-UNE with the support of the Queensland Department of Agriculture and Fisheries (DAF) tested satellite remote sensors for yield forecasting purposes across multiple growing regions and commercial vegetable farms.
