Abstract

Developed by HarvestChoice by blending and interpreting information from both HWSD and WISE databases.

For a selected location (mapping unit) droppr returns:
• Number of soil types
• Representative WISE profiles assigned to each soil type
• Area share of each soil type
• Fertility, Depth and Texture classes of each soil type according to HC27
• Downloadable data in DSSAT or APSIM format for crop modeling
