Farm-Level Crop Yield Forecasting in the Absence of Farm-Level Data

This research develops a new relational model to predict farm-level crop yield distributions in the absence of farm-level yield data, in order to improve the accuracy of computing crop insurance premium rates.  This is the first paper to develop a relational model in order to relate farm-level yield experience between two separate countries in order to enhance the farm-level dataset to more accurately compute premiums.
