Implementation of WOFOST
We provide several implementations of WOFOST in different programming languages (FORTRAN, python, java). Moreover, we provide the parameter sets required to run WOFOST for difference crops and a set of jupyter notebooks that demonstrate capabilities of PCSE/ WOFOST.
Currently, four implementations of WOFOST are available from Wageningen University & Research:
- The original implementation of WOFOST written in FORTRAN77. This implementation is still available, but is not actively maintained anymore.
- WOFOST implemented in the Python Crop Simulation Environment (PCSE);
- WOFOST implemented in the Wageningen Integrated Systems Simulator (WISS), a Java framework targeting the agro-ecological modelling domain;
- The Soil-Water-Atmosphere-Plant modelling system (SWAP).
All these implementations inherit their biophysical core from WOFOST 6.0, but differ in their abilities to deal with I/O (file, database), their user interface or general flexibility.
