The paper describes a model for prediction of soil temperature of bare and various residue-covered soils with and without a corn crop where the needed inputs are daily maximum and minimum air temperatures at the 2-m height, initial soil temperature, and thermal diffusivity profiles. Predictions of root zone temperature from the current model are tested against the measured values for six treatments representing various degrees of cover resulting from either the residue or shading by growing plants.
