May 14-19, 2018
The University of Georgia at Griffin, Georgia, USA

Jointly presented by the DSSAT Foundation, Auburn University, University of Florida, University of Georgia, and the International Fertilizer Development Center – the workshop will cover the operation of DSSAT Version 4.7, description of the DSSAT-Cropping System Model, CSM and its modules, and the science embedded in the models, minimum data requirements and experimental data collection for systems simulation, integration of crop simulation models with database management and GIS, and the application of the DSSAT-CSM model to improve management of cropping systems.

Improving Soil Fertility Recommendations in Africa

The new book gives a detailed description of the application of DSSAT in simulating crop and soil processes within various Agro-ecological zones in Africa. The book provides examples of the application of DSSAT models to simulate nitrogen applications, soil and water conservation practices including effects of zai technology, phosphorus and maize productivity, generation of genetic coefficients, long-term soil fertility management technologies in the drylands, microdosing, optimization of nitrogen x germplasms x water, spatial analysis of water and nutrient use efficiencies and, tradeoff analysis.
