You may use irrigation and peak soil moisture levels in your model

We want to clarify that you may use the irrigation and peak soil moisture levels in your models. We realize that there was some confusion, but because the time left on this competition is limited, we will allow these fields even though they represent "future" data. However, you cannot use any other future data aside from these two fields. Good luck!

Thanks Zindi for clarifying.

Hi ZINDI, I am still confused, please I need a clarification.

Can I backpropagate Soil humidity peak in time to estimate past Soil humidity values ?

Hi Jasseur, You may use the irrigation and peak soil moisture levels in your models. This means you can use them however you see fit, including backpropagation if you choose.
