In this research, we created a yield prediction statistical model for system design regarding plant resource utilization in consideration of meteorological factors. We applied it to the sugar/ethanol combined production system from sugar cane. The paper is published in the Journal of Life Cycle Assessment, Japan, 14(4), 302-318 (2018).
