Abstract

This paper describes how wind engineering, geospatial science and crop agronomy disciplines can be combined to provide a decision support system for farmers to manage lodging risk, using the Crop Failure Assessment due to Lodging Losses (CROPFALL) framework. CROPFALL calculates lodging risk using information about topography, land cover, soil type and meteorological data, combined with a mechanistic model of lodging, and crop parameters. The risk of lodging is calculated at regional, farm, field and sub-field scales. The impact of crop management changes on lodging risk is simulated, demonstrating that modest crop management changes can achieve large reductions in lodging risk.
