Abstract:The goal of this study was to test the applicability of artificial neural networks for estimating tree heights in clonal tests and progenies. We used data from 8,329 clonal tests collected for six age groups, divided into six blocks and five repetitions. For the progeny tests, we used 36,793 data points, collected at age 5 and divided into ten blocks and five repetitions. The categorical input variables considered were age, treatment, and block. The diameter (dap) was used with continuous input variables. For … Show more
