About this book

Offers a treatment of modern applications of modelling and simulation in crop, livestock, forage/livestock systems, and field operations. The book discusses methodologies from linear programming and neutral networks, to expert or decision support systems, as well as featuring models, such as SOYGRO, CROPGRO and GOSSYM/COMAX. It includes coverage on evaporation and evapotranspiration, the theory of simulation based on biological processes, and deficit irrigation scheduling.


Humanization of decision support using knowledge acquired from simulation; simulation of biological processes; mathematical techniques in biological simulation; integrating spatial and temporal aspects of a simulation - an energy example; modellingprocesses and operation with linear programming; expert systems for self-adjusting process simulation; evaporation models; use of crop simulation in management GOSSYM/COMAX; integrated methods and models for deficit irrigation planning; GRAZE - abeef-forage model of selective grazing; dynamical models and their application to optimizing grazing management; modelling and simulation in applied livestock production science; the plant-animal interface in models of grazing systems; field machineryselection using simulation and optimization; whole-farm simulation of field operations; fundamentals of neural networks; artificial intelligence-based optimization using agents; simulation of crop growth - CROPGRO.
