Large-area yield prediction early in the growing season is important in agricultural decision-making. This study derived maize (Zea mays L.) leaf area index (LAI) estimates from spectral data and used these estimates witha simple LAI-based yield model to forecast yield under irrigated conditions in large areas in Sinaloa, Mexico. Leaf area index was derived from satellite data with the use of an equation developed with LAI measurements from farmers' fields during the 2001-2002 autumn-winter… CONTINUE READING
