Russia created a neural network to increase wheat yield by 20%

Russian scientists from the Stavropol State Agrarian University and the Andrey Melnichenko Foundation have developed a neural network that can increase wheat yields by about 20%, Izvestia wrote.

It is specified that the neural network will recommend types and dosage of fertilizers to get maximum yield and high quality grain.

The data for the neural network is provided by a drone, which within half an hour flies over the sown areas and collects necessary information, including the visual condition of plants and the content of various gases in the air.

Experiments are currently being conducted on wheat, and the developers estimate a yield increase of about 20%.
