A comparison of two methods to predict the landscape-scale variation of crop yield

Soil and Tillage Research 58(3/4): 163-181

A comparison of two methods to predict the landscape-scale variation of crop yield

Our objective was to compare the results of two approaches, analysis of covariance (ANCOVA) and state-space modelling to determine the factors affecting grain yield in three crop rotations (pea (Pisum sativum)-wheat (Triticum aestivum)-barley (Hordeum vulgare), rape (Brassica napus)-wheat-barley, and wheat-wheat-barley) at two sites in Saskatchewan, Canada.

Intensive tillage moves large quantities of soil, resulting in a pattern of soil redistribution where topsoil is depleted from convex slope positions and deposited in concave positions. In these experiments, the variation in erosion estimates, pro...

However, ecological data also tend to be spatially correlated, which can aid in estimating and imputing...
