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 […]
