Forecasting Agricultural Crop Yields at National scales (FACYNation)
FACYNation is project that brings together data science experts under the Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC), UK, Met Office climate scientists and Open University plant ecologists to exploit and assess the potential for accurate real-time yield forecast of wheat, maize and rice in major production regions, and the likely climate change impacts.
The outcome of this project will be:
1) Essential for supporting food system decision-makers in understanding and managing their climate risk and
2) vital for achieving SDG 2 (zero hunger)
