Improving Simulation of Soil Water Dynamics and Crop Yields in the US Corn Belt

Funded by FFAR, New Innovator Award, this project aims to 1) develop protocols to enable simulation of water table dynamics in crop models across the landscape; 2) develop new mechanisms to relate excessive moisture impacts on soil-plant-atmosphere processes; and 3) improve and expand the coverage of the FACTS forecasting and assessment cropping systems web-tool that provides real-time predictions.
