Summary Presenting the most recent findings by internationally recognized researchers in the field, this timely book provides an in-depth treatment of modern applications of modeling and simulation in crops, livestock, forage/livestock systems, and field operations - discussing modeling methodologies from linear programming and neural networks to expert or decision support systems as well as featuring agricultural models, such as CROPGRO, GOSSYM/COMAX, GRAZE, and SIMHERD.
Containing current information facilitating the development of new models, Agricultural Systems Modeling and Simulation furnishes excellent coverage on theory of methods of simulation based on biological processes...the integration of Geographic Information Systems technology with time-based simulation...evaporation and evapotranspiration...the human/computer interface...Object-Oriented Programming (OOP)...deficit irrigation scheduling...livestock systems grazing on forage as well as nongrazing...machinery selection, capacities, and costs...and more.
