[Q] Deterministic or stochastic?

Question

I’d like to know if DSSAT model use a linear programming or not and if DSSAT model’s uncertainty is deterministic or stochastic. – RG

Answer

Thank you for your message and interest in DSSAT. The crop models are based on partial differential equations and they areĀ deterministic.

Uncertainty is handled by providing the models with different series of weather data.

    That was a good question and answer. I have just learnt that DSSAT uses partial differential equations , not linear programming. I hope this is in all cases deterministic.
