Model Tracks Carbon Through Agroecosystem

Scientists at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign have created a new model to track carbon through the agroecosystem. The team’s complex advanced agroecosystem model, named ecosys, integrates advanced model simulations with observational data to model energy, water, carbon, and nutrient fluxes cycling in the agroecosystem. The team says the model will help advance precision agriculture to increase crop yields and sustain soil organic content.
