Use of a Crop Simulation Model to Provide Long-Term Data for Economic Analysis: the Case of Early Maturing Soybeans

A target MOTAD model is used to investigate incorporation of early maturing soybeans by a crop farm in southeastern Kansas. Weather (WGEN) and crop simulation (SOYGRO) models are used to generate a long-term series of soybean yields. Results indicate that early maturing soybeans offer a risk-reducing diversification strategy.
