Maize yield estimates in the US corn belt from 2001-2017 based on methods from Jin et al. 2017. Our approach (SCYM: Scalable Crop Yield Mapper) combines satellite observations with crop model simulations to estimate crop yields at sub-field resolution even where reliable ground-based estimates are unavailable.

We develop globally robust approaches for mapping crop locations and yields to inform agricultural… Read more
