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 […]

[Q] What happened to ICASA?

Status of ICASA On July 1, 2011 the International Consortium for Agricultural Systems Applications (ICASA) was officially dissolved. As a center “without walls” and with no financial support, ICASA has been for many years at the forefront in promoting collaboration among system scientists. ICASA has stimulated the advancement of crop modeling and decision support systems […]

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 […]
