End-of-Season Evaluation

An the end of the 2016 growing season this page will be replaced with an interactive "Assessment" Tool where we will present the scenario analysis. The year 2015 was the pilot year for the FACTS project. It was initiated with two location (Ames and Sutherland), two crops (corn and soybean), and two dates of planting (early and late). Model performance, yield gap analysis and scenario analysis for 2015 are summarized here.
