This paper has used a fuzzy comprehensive prediction method and taken tree vigor data from 29 orchards as samples. By using 23 of the total samples, the apple yield prediction model base on tree vigor is established. The test precision of the model is 96.36%. With other six orchards to be predicted, this paper calculated fuzzy division and eigenvalues of grade variables and obtained apple yield prediction accuracy which is 91.08%. This model has practical applied value in apple yield prediction.
