A 100 Year Time Series Analysis of Corn, Soybeans, and Wheat in Wisconsin

Program: Data Science Master's
Location: Wisconsin (remote)
Student: Charles Di Renzo

My project was to examine the last 100 years of crop growth in Wisconsin. The crops that were examined were Corn, Soybeans, and Wheat from the years of 1920 to 2020. I wanted to look at the factors that impacted the increase in bushels per acre over the last 100 years, specifically bioengineered crops, changes to technology, and changes to farming methods.
