Predicting Africa Soil Properties Using Machine Learning Techniques

  title={Predicting Africa Soil Properties Using Machine Learning Techniques},
  author={Iretiayo Akinola and Thomas C Dowd},
Different machine learning algorithms were assessed for estimating five functional soil parameters (SOC content, Calcium content, Phosphorous content, sand content, and pH value). The algorithms used include variants of linear regression and support vector regression. A closer look at the prediction performance for each target revealed that apart from pH, which consistently had worse performance, prediction for the other soil properties was quite satisfactory (RMSE < 0.4). Applying machine… CONTINUE READING
