Models to predict Mediterranean olive production

Olive oil is a major resource of the Mediterranean region. Olive oil production can be improved by understanding the reproductive biology of the olive tree on large areas, but research tools are actually missing. 

Therefore Oteros et al. developed six crop models adapted to the Mediterranean Basin, using data from 17 sampling points during the last 20 years. The results reveal better prediction of olive production.
