Abstract. Accurate and spatially explicit information on crop yield over large areas is paramount for ensuring global food security and guiding policy-making. However, most public datasets are coarse resolution in both space and time. Here, we used data-driven models to develop a 4-km dataset of global wheat yield (GlobalWheatYield4km) from 1982 to 2020. First, we proposed a phenology-based approach to map spatial distribution. Then we determined the optimal grid-scale yield estimation model by comparing the performance of two data-driven models (i.e., Random Forest (RF) and Long Short-Term Memory (LSTM)), with publicly available data (i.e., satellite and climatic data from the Google Earth Engine (GEE) platform, soil properties, and subnational statistics covering ~11000 political units). The results showed that GlobalWheatYield4km captured 82 % of yield variations with RMSE of 619.8 kg/ha. In addition, our dataset had a higher accuracy (R2 ~0.73) as compared with Spatial Production Allocation Model (R2 ~ 0.49) across all regions and years. The GlobalWheatYield4km dataset will play important roles in modelling crop system and assessing climate impact over larger areas ((DOI of the referenced dataset: https://doi.org/10.6084/m9.figshare.10025006; Luo et al., 2022b).

Short summary
We generated a 4-km dataset of global wheat yield (GlobalWheatYield4km) from 1982 to 2020 using data-driven models. Compared with subnational statistics covering ~11000 political units, GlobalWheatYield4km captured 82 % of yield variations with RMSE of 619.8 kg/ha. The dataset will play important roles in modelling crop system and assessing climate impact over larger areas
