Operational prediction of smallholder yields in-season
- Host Institution:
ICRISAT | agCelerant-Senegal, Dakar, Senegal
- Supervisors :
Pierre C. Sibiry Traore | Steven Ndung’u | Cedric Champenois
- Project Description:
The agCelerantTM digital smallholder value chain orchestration platform provides yield prediction services through its TARGET module. Underlying methods include process-based models fed by proximal field data. This internship will support the containerization of predictive models for TARGET operations on selected cereals and legumes, contributing to the CASCAID (CCAFS) and HEURISTICS (Habitus) projects.
- Expected outcome:
Recurrent in-season predictions of plot-level yields help de-risk smallholder value chains in contractual farming.
