A New Global High-Resolution Soil Profile Database for DSSAT

The HarvestChoice Project at IFPRI, in collaboration with IRI at Columbia University and Michigan State University, published a working paper on the development of a new, global high-resolution soil profile database for DSSAT. The dataset is freely available at IFPRI’s Dataverse at http://dx.doi.org/10.7910/DVN/1PEEY0.

Converting WISE 1.1 Soil Profile Database for Crop Models

Through the collaboration with HarvestChoice, a team of scientists at the Universities of Georgia and Florida converted 3,404 soil profiles from the World Soil Information (ISRIC) WISE Global Soil Profile Database v1.1 to the DSSAT-compatible format. Beyond the specific locations, this large collection of soil profiles can be used by crop modeling researchers as a […]

HC27: Generic Soil Profiles

Complex crop systems models require detailed soil property data that are not always available at regional-level and often blocks scaling up modeling studies. As an option, HarvestChoice presents a pragmatic approach that attempts to characterize any type of soil with a set of 27 generic soil profiles. This dataset, called HC27, may not replace the […]
