5th DSSAT Development Sprint

DSSAT Development Sprint July 2016

DSSAT Development Sprint Team | July 2016

During the week of July 25 a small group of developers met in the Department of Agricultural and Biological Engineering at the University of Florida for 5th DSSAT Development Sprint.

Some exciting new developments include a forage module for the simulation of perennial grasses, an expanded “automated irrigation” option that allows for stage specific irrigation, the evaluation of combining C++ and Fortran code to facilitate dynamic linkages with pest, disease, and grazing models, and various other improvements. We expect to incorporate some of these changes in the next release of DSSAT.
