Tomorrow's Crop (TMC)
is an on-line tool based on DSSAT crop simulation systems.
Users can see how planting date influences yield as probability distributions that are based on 100 of possible weather
scenarios generated from historical weather data. Currently, it has two components, which are
Tomorrow's Rice (TMR)
and Tomorrow's Wheat (TMW)
TMR collects the historical weather data from IRI, Columbia University ( daily minimum temperature, maximum temperatures
and rainfall) and NASA ( daily solar radiation ). TMR also estimate the impact of climate change by applying World Bank's
climate change data set.
TMW collects the historical weather data from CloudSense via OGC's SOS( Sensor Observation Service ). The original data
source is NIAES's agro-weather data derived by model calculation from AMeDAS data. Currently only Memuro and Obihiro data
is provided. The cultivar parameters of Kitahonami variety was calibrated against yield and field observation by a research
project between Chubu University and IHI Corporation.
