In 2017, the Yield Forecasting (FACTS) project was replicated to achive the objective of forecasting in-season soil water-nitrogen dynamics, in-season plant growth, and end-of-season grain yields. This concept was initiated to help farmers and agronomists make in-season management decisions, in addition to the ability to look back on the growing season to see what management practices could have been changed to improve grain yields and net profits, but also reduce nitrogen loss.
