nitrogen decision

Catalogue: GRDC Updates
The simulations provide a framework for farmers and advisers to: forecast yield manage climate and soil water risk make informed decisions about nitrogen and irrigation applications match inputs with the yield potential of their crop assess the effect of changed sowing dates or varieties assess the possible effects of climate change ... Yield Prophet generates crop simulations that combine the essential components of growing a crop including: a soil test sampled prior to planting a soil classification selected from the Yield Prophet library of ~1,000 soils selected as representative of the production area historical and active climate data taken from the nearest Bureau of Meteorology (BOM) weather station paddock specific rainfall data recorded by the user (optional) individual crop details fertiliser and irrigation applications during the growing season... Using historic climate data, Yield Prophet then simulates crop growth and resource availability from the day on which the report was generated to the end of the season...
