The CCAFS Regional Agricultural Forecasting Toolbox (CRAFT) is a software platform designed for yield forecasting at spatial resolutions of either 5 or 30 arc-minutes using an ensemble modeling approach. Currently the DSSAT, APSIM, and SARRA-H crop simulation models have been implemented for nine important food and feed crops using the AgMIP IT tools. CRAFT was an initiative of CCAFS and was developed in partnership with the Asia Risk Center, Washington State University, and the University of Florida.Read More about CRAFT Download from the Google Drive
What is DSSAT?
Decision Support System for Agrotechnology Transfer (DSSAT) is software application program that comprises dynamic crop growth simulation models for over 40 crops. DSSAT is supported by a range of utilities and apps for weather, soil, genetic, crop management, and observational experimental data, and includes example data sets for all crop models. The crop simulation models simulate growth, development and yield as a function of the soil-plant-atmosphere dynamics. DSSAT has been used for many applications ranging from genetic modeling to on-farm and precision management to regional assessments of the impact of climate variability and climate change. DSSAT has been in use for more than 30 years by researchers, educators, consultants, extension agents, growers, private industry, policy and decision makers, and many others in over 150 countries worldwide.

We are pleased to announce the release of the CSM-CROPGRO-Perennial-Forage model in DSSAT Version 4.7, complete with species adaptations and data files for three perennial forages: Brachiaria brizantha Stapf cv. Marandu, ‘Tifton 85’ bermudagrass (Cynodon spp.), and alfalfa (Medicago sativa L.) cv. Aragón. The CROPGRO Perennial Forage Model (CROPGRO-PFM) was developed from the annual crop […]
