Ag Engineering/Agronomy, Central Iowa and BioCentury Research Farms
In 2017, the Forecast and Assessment of Cropping sysTemS (FACTS) project was replicated to achieve the objective of forecasting and evaluating in-season soil-crop dynamics. This concept was initiated to help farmers and agronomists make in-season management decisions, in addition to identifying the management practices that could have been changed to improve grain yields, net profits, and also reduce environmental impacts.
