GOSSYM: A COTTON CROP SIMULATION MODEL AS A TOOL FOR THE FARMERA. C. Gertsis,Frank D. WhislerActa Horticulturae, 1998 View paper
GOSSYM is a mass-balance dynamic model that simulates C, N, and water processes in the plant and soil root zone throughout the cotton life cycle. It predicts crop growth (with detailed plant chemistry, morphogenesis, and phenology) and soil responses to environmental stresses, primarily from heat, water, C, and nutrients. These stresses are determined by climate variables such as solar radiation, temperature, rainfall, and wind, as well as by soil properties and cultural practices including irrigation and fertilization.
