Prediction for optimum plat yield of various crop cycles – Arunit, PGP DSBA


I’m Arunit, proprietor of Arunit Farms, an agriculture start-up the place we develop vegatables and fruits hydroponically, unbiased of weather conditions. The challenge has been within the operating for 4 years now. PGP-DSBA has supplied a perspective on the significance of knowledge in our life, and now we have used that perspective to start out amassing knowledge on the totally different plant cycles operating in our challenge. 

There’s a variation within the yields of the assorted crops now we have planted through the years, which has by no means been understood until now. Some cycles have seen crops with excellent efficiency, whereas others have crops with common and poor efficiency, and different parameters have remained fixed. The issue concerned figuring out the very best parameters for constant yield for the totally different crop cycles with minimal fertilizer and electrical energy wastage. 

The data collected entails the water temperature, air temperature, humidity, insolation, the amount of fertilizer used, high quality/model of fertilizer used, electrical energy consumed in sustaining the air temperature, plant development in a particular interval, and yield per plant.

We carried out this train on English Cucumbers, cherry tomatoes, and crimson/yellow capsicum, the place totally different air and water temperatures and fertilization schedules/charges had been maintained on totally different samples.

We used Knowledge Science to unravel this downside by constructing linear regression fashions to foretell which options affected the yield essentially the most and the coefficients by which increments and reductions sooner or later values affected the yield. 

The mannequin was deployed on the subsequent crop cycle, which noticed a big enhance of round 12% within the yields of the three crops. In distinction, electrical energy consumption was decreased by 4% roughly. The fertilizer consumption remained virtually the identical, however sure manufacturers of fertilizers gave higher outcomes.
