Provide clear, concise and relevant datasets (existing and/or new) to NRCS for use in CEAP pastureland modeling, and for ARS scientist review of model outputs using provided datasets and constructed conservation scenarios on pasturelands.
We will Identify existing pasture datasets at several ARS locations in the U.S., enter the data and documentation into database, and provide the data to NRCS for parameterizing and validating pasture model such as APEX, ALMANAC, and RHEM, and assess accuracy of model output for meeting CEAP objectives.
