The online risk management and decision support program, Yield Prophet, was developed by the Birchip Cropping Group (BCG), and is a simplified version of the Agricultural Production Systems Simulator (APSIM) program, developed by the Agricultural Production Systems Research Unit (APSRU)... BCG consultant Dr Harm van Rees says that the model is designed to understand cropping in Australia, which is a very complex issue, and the accuracy of the data put in by growers is crucial to how well it works...

Southern grain growers are now able to access 'live' updates of subsoil water levels from 12 sites where information from soil water probes and weather stations is being used in conjunction with Yield Prophet ... The probes are monitoring growing-season soil moisture levels in the root zone of a range of crops... Sites have been chosen to represent some of the key soil types that have not been well characterised for Yield Prophet , and are in locations that are accessible to grower groups across the Esperance and Albany port zones...
