Operating at the extreme: estimating the upper yield boundary of winter wheat production in commercial practice

Mitchell, Emily G; Crout, N.; Wilson, Paul; Wood, Andrew; Stupfler, Giles


Wheat farming provides 28.5% of global cereal production. After steady growth in average crop yield from 1950 to 1990, wheat yields have generally stagnated, which prompts the question of whether further improvements are possible. Statistical studies of agronomic parameters such as crop yield have so far exclusively focused on estimating parameters describing the whole of the data, rather than the highest yields specifically. These indicators include the mean or median yield of a crop, or...[Show more]
