Posted: 9/12/2016 Viewed: 4305 times
Hey everybody,

I have data of a lysimeter with changing crops every year and I would like to simulate it with WEAP-MABIA.
I could enter several cuttings per year but ss there any option of changing crops every year?

Like

30.04.2001 - 01.10.2001 maize
17.10.2001 - 15.07.2002 winterwheat
14.04.2003 - 20.11.2003 sugar beets
...

Best Regards

Christian

You can change crops if you switch back and forth among two or more catchment subbranches. For example, under your catchment, create three branches, named Maize, Winterwheat, and Sugar Beets. Use the Step function to change the area for each branch, such that the sum of the three branches equaled the actual land area. Two of the branches could be zero, or you could have a mix of crops in any one year.
