To predict the yield, some current indicators of the vegetation process are used, which are associated with the productivity of the crop. The results of the methodology for predicting grain yields based on the maximum value of the NDVI index, when the heading phase has begun, are proposed. The seasonal dynamics of NDVI in the phases of crop development was studied, peaks of NDVI values were noted in the heading phase of crops. Prognostic models of crop yields based on polynomial functions have been obtained.
