A crop growth simulation which demonstrates the effect of applications of nitrogen and fungicides to a cereal crop on the progress of fungal disease and the final yield. The user specifies his situation, including soil type, crop and sowing date and can then decide interactively when to apply nitrogen and fungicides. The program calculates the yield for the system a specified from sets of weather data. An optimisation mode calculates whether to spray on a given day and simulates alternative future scenarios of spraying and weather.
