Description

To date identification of causes of yield gaps (difference between maximum yield potential and measured yield in producer yields) has been restricted to small geographic areas. In this study, we developed a novel approach that combines producer-reported data and a spatial framework to identify explanatory causes of yield gap over large geographic regions with diversity of climate, soils, and water regimes (rainfed and irrigated).
