CropSyst is a is a user-friendly, conceptually simple but sound multi-year
multi-crop daily time step simulation model. The model has been developed to
serve as an analytic tool to study the effect of cropping systems management
on productivity and the environment. The model simulates the soil water budget,
soil-plant nitrogen budget, crop canopy and root growth, dry matter
production, yield, residue production and decomposition, and erosion.
Management options include: cultivar selection, crop rotation (including
fallow years), irrigation, nitrogen fertilization, tillage operations (over 80
options), and residue management. The model is currently written in Turbo
Pascal 6.0 for MS-DOS using an object oriented programming approach.
