    Author(s): Anuj Kumar Dwivedi*, C.S.P. Ojha and Vijay P. Singh

    The Indian economy depends on agriculture, and wheat is one of the most important grains of the country. The northern states of India, like Punjab, Haryana, Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh, and Uttarakhand contribute a lot to the production of wheat but they lie in different agro-climatic zones. Climatic parameters greatly impact agricultural productivity. Using agro-meteorological and satellite parameters, the present study develops regression models for predicting crop yield in three different agro-climatic zones of India. Remote sensing approaches are being increasingly utilized these days. The present study develops a wheat yield models using the Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI) as well as agro meteorological data like rainfall, temperature, and humidity for the districts of Allahabad, Haridwar, and Ludhiana in the states of Uttar Prad..
