Automated Heat Stress Mitigation

  • Faculty: Lav Khot (WSU), Markus Keller (WSU), Bernardita Sallato (WSU), Alan Fern (OSU)
  • Graduate students: Basavaraj Amogi (WSU), Dattatray Bhalekar (WSU), Srikant Gorthi (WSU) 
  • Undergraduate students: Nelson Goosman (WSU), Ali Alsmael (WSU)

  • Develop a cultivar-specific dataset with due ground-truthing to model heat stress in apples and grapes 
  • Develop and implement weather and crop physiology-driven machine learning models to predict heat stress in fresh market apples (cv. Honeycrisp, Cosmic Crisp) and grapes (cv. Chardonnay)  

  • Machine learning models that ingest weather (open- or in-field) and crop/fruit physiology data to predict heat stress in apples and grapes will be able to address related complexities with existing energy balance and other modeling approaches, providing a reliable decision support tool for growers to timely mitigate the heat stress for improved fruit quality and packouts.
