The HarvestChoice Project at IFPRI, in collaboration with IRI at Columbia University and Michigan State University, published a working paper on the development of a new, global high-resolution soil profile database for DSSAT. The dataset is freely available at IFPRI’s Dataverse at http://dx.doi.org/10.7910/DVN/1PEEY0.
February 9, 2012, marked 500th download of the WISE 1.1 Global Soil Profile Database in DSSAT format. To celebrate, we created a little Wordle using the users’ responses to our question on the intended use of the dataset.
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 […]
