Can we use peak soil humidity has provided in the test set to train the model?

"You may not use data from the future".

Since we are provided with peak soil humidity in the test set, can we utilise this to train a model despite being a data point in the future?

😀there is a contradiction somewhere..look at this again, "You may use only the datasets that are provided here by ZindiZindi"

You can't use data from the future, however the exceptions are the peak soil humidities after irrigation. You may only use that value.

Where is the Test set?

Hello ahmedelshal,

You will see that in the Train.csv there are missing values for the last 4/6 days (depending on which field). You will need to predict the soil humidities for these last 4/6 days. We refer to the last 4/6 days as the test set.

Hope this helps.
