Description

Working with Dynamic Crop Models: Methods, Tools and Examples for Agriculture and Environment 3e is once again completely revised and updated ensuring those seeking to understand and apply methods for working with dynamic models have applicable insight into current modeling.

Structured by topic, each chapter includes an introduction, a detailed explanation of available methods, illustrations showing how the methods can be applied, and a detailed description of their implementation. The examples guide readers to direct, effective and efficient application of the methods while providng ore understanding of the related concepts.

Known for not being a "numerical recipes" book, Working with Dynamic Crop Models is designs for relative ease in adapting the provided code to new problems and challenges.

Key Features

  • Includes new chapters on Ensemble Modeling, Meta-models, gene-based modeling and improved strategies for using models
  • Presents insights on modeling from the basics to the most recent advances in technique and software and provides examples for applicable learning
  • Features an integrative chapter illustrating how the different topics fit together in a complete modeling project

Readership

Researchers and advanced students in agronomy, agricultural and biological engineering, agricultural economics and agricultural statistics
