Development Priorities

Development Priorities

As a community developed tool, DSSAT is not supported by a core source of funding or software license fees. Thus, priorities are primarily established through a combination of consensus and research interests of individual collaborators. An important opportunities for establishing priorities are the weeklong DSSAT development sprints, which are held twice a year (see below). Another important opportunity is when collaborators can provide funding for development via projects that are developed with input from DSSAT contributors.
