Book: Methods of Introducing System Models into Agricultural Research, Advances in Agricultural Systems Modeling 2, 2011
Published by: American Society of Agronomy, Crop Science Society of America, Soil Science Society of America

 

Agricultural system models enhance and extend field research...to synthesize and examine experiment data and advance our knowledge faster, to extend current research in time to predict best management systems, and to prepare for climate-change effects on agriculture. Methods of Introducing System Models into Agricultural Research is the ultimate handbook for field scientists and other model users in the proper methods of model use. Readers will learn parameter estimation, calibration, validation, and extension of experimental results to other weather conditions, soils, and climates.
