Crop Reporter

Tool Type: Interactive data query
Publication Date: October, 2011

Based on the country-level crop production statistics retrieved from FAOSTAT in 2006, this tool instantly shows users the custom ranking across countries and regions in terms of their reported harvest area, production, production value, and yield of major crops.

Yield Target and Poverty Reduction Model for South Asia

Yield Target and Poverty Reduction Model for South Asia

Tool Type: Model
Publication Date: January, 2011

Comparative static model used to estimate long-term aggregate potential yield gains and aggregate potential poverty reduction effects from narrowing yield gaps for selected commodities in selected regions. The model allows for differentiated yield gap closure and technology adoption scenarios in focus and non-focus countries and for focus and non-focus crops. The model also accounts for varying "poverty-productivity" elasticities across commodities (a synthetic measure linking productivity gains and poverty reduction).

Yield Target and Poverty Reduction Model for Sub-Saharan Africa

Tool Type: Model
Publication Date: January, 2011

This comparative static model estimates potential yield increases and poverty reduction effects based on user-selected yield closure gap assumptions. A poverty-productivity elasticity (extracted from the relevant literature) and crop-specific adjustments are used to link productivity gains to a lowering of poverty prevalence rates and poverty headcounts compounded over a 20 year period.

Climex/Dymex Pest/Disease Modeling (HarvestChoice Modifications)

Tool Type: Model
Publication Date: January, 2010

CLIMEX is a software program (written in DYMEX) that estimates the potential geographical distribution and seasonal abundance of a plant pest/disease in relation to climate. HarvestChoice has invested in the extension of the CLIMEX package to deal with climate time series rather than average climate conditions.

DSSAT Crop Simulation Results (Cultivar, Planting Month, Fertilizer Treatments)

Tool Type: Droppr
Publication Date: January, 2009

This tool supports user access of the HarvestChoice crop modeling results database for specific locations. Droppr returns a graphical display of the mean monthly rainfall for the selected location and allows the user to query the crop modeling results for specific baseline and improved (with intervention) production system scenarios.

Harmonized World Soil Database (HWSD)

Tool Type: Droppr
Publication Date: January, 2009

The Harmonized World Soil Database (HWSD), jointly developed by FAO, IISAS, ISSCAS, and JRC, is a mapping unit-based soil property database.

NASA-Power Daily Time Series

Tool Type: Droppr
Publication Date: January, 2009

Drag and drop the Droppr on any location in SSA to return historical monthly averages on rainfall, max and min temperatures. The NASA-Power dataset contains daily climatelogical data from July 1983 through present for some variables.
