The high number of variables and consequent complex analysis are factors that make the task of selecting a specific crop variety, that best fulfill the particularities of a given farm, a challenging one. In this scenario, this work proposes a ranking/decision method to deal with the stochastic problem of select a winter wheat variety, taking into account the random factors that influence in the specific decision. The system evaluates the commercial destination, site-specific and agronomic importance of varieties treats, such as resistance to diseases and lodging, to output a list of best winter wheat varieties choices, for a particular situation. The system's accuracy has been verified by experts of crop science, where a number of random outcomes were tested against specialist opinion.||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||Journal of Advanced Agricultural Technologies||Journal:||Journal of Advanced Agricultural Technologies||Volume:||4||Issue:||2||Start page:||104||End page:||110||Copyright (published version):||2017 Journal of Advanced Agricultural Technologies||Keywords:||Variety selection; Winter wheat; Autonomous system; Agricultural system; Decision support system; Seed selection||DOI:||10.18178/joaat.4.2.104-110||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed|
