Effect of Weather on Forage Yields of Winter Oats, Rye, and Wheat1
- Richard H. Hart and
- Glenn W. Burton2
Multiple regression equations, including date of harvest, accumulated rainfall, solar radiation, and temperature as independent variables and forage yields of oats, rye, and wheat as dependent variables, were computed, using data from an 8-year period. The best-fitting equations gave R2 values of .96, .91, and .93 for oats, rye, and wheat, respectively. From these equations and long-term weather data, we developed frequency distributions of total yield and yield during the winter months.Please view the pdf by using the Full Text (PDF) link under 'View' to the left.
