Agricultural Systems Modeling and Simulation

Front Cover
Robert M. Peart, W. David Shoup
CRC Press, Sep 16, 1997 - Technology & Engineering - 728 pages
Offers a treatment of modern applications of modelling and simulation in crop, livestock, forage/livestock systems, and field operations. The book discusses methodologies from linear programming and neutral networks, to expert or decision support systems, as well as featuring models, such as SOYGRO, CROPGRO and GOSSYM/COMAX. It includes coverage on evaporation and evapotranspiration, the theory of simulation based on biological processes, and deficit irrigation scheduling.
