The paper, entitled Software tools for management of conjunctive use of surface- and ground-water in the rural environment: integration of the Farm Process and the Crop Growth Module in the FREEWAT platform, is authored by Rudy Rossetto, Giovanna De Filippis, Federico Triana, Matteo Ghetta, Iacopo Borsi and Wolfgang Schmid and it has been published on Agricultural Water Management.
The paper presents the integration of the Farm Process (embedded in the USGS’s MODFLOW One-Water Hydrologic Model) coupled to a Crop Growth Module within the FREEWAT platform.
A simple hypothetic, yet realistic, application of the proposed approach is presented, simulating the yield of irrigated sunflower at harvest in a Mediterranean area.
The paper is open access. The full paper can be downloaded from this webpage of the FREEWAT website, where an updated list of FREEWAT-related papers is available.
