The corn model MAIZSIM and potato model SPUDSIM are under development. These models require additional modules and algorithms to improve in order to accurately simulate these crops under arid conditions of the northwestern United States. The collaborator using the data collected under irrigated conditions of the arid northwest will develop new modules and algorithms and integrate with the MAIZSIM and SPUDSIM models. These models will be validated against field data collected under a range of environmental, soil, and management conditions using several cultivars. They will also identify and develop cultivar specific parameters.
