"Your solution needs to use one model to predict soil humidities for all four fields."

Does this mean that ensembling and stacking are prohibited in this competition?

You may use whatever methods you need to optimize your solution, however, the winning solutions need to be applied to all 4 fields individually.

Wazihub plans to implement the winning solutions on other plots. 

Hi. So to be clear, I can implement 4 different models, one for each field, as long as I compile the results using the format in the sample submission? Or do I need one optimized model that I should apply uniformly across all the fields?

Hi simbapy,

You need one optimized model that applys to all the fields.

The aim of this challenge is to create a solution that can be applied to other farms in Senegal, so the final solution needs to be general enough to apply to all fields but still highly accurate.
