Modeling organic carbon and carbon-mediated soil processes in DSSAT v4.5
Cropping systems models have evolved over the last four decades in response to the demand for modeling to address more complex questions, including issues on sustainable production, climate change, and environmental impacts. Early models, which were used primarily for yield gap analysis, have increased in complexity to include not only nutrient and water deficiencies, but also pest and disease damage and processes affecting soil nutrient dynamics. This is the case in the CSM (Cropping System Model) within DSSAT (Decision Support System for Agrotechnology Transfer). This package was developed from various models of individual crops beginning about 25 years ago into one that now has over 25 crops integrated into one program that share many components in a modular format. This modular structure was intended to facilitate incorporation of new components to address those more complex issues. A recent example of this continuing progression is that the CENTURY soil organic matter model was a...
