Sugarcane model intercomparison: Structural differences and uncertainties under current and potential future climates

Abstract

Sugarcane is one of the world's main carbohydrates sources. We analysed the APSIM-Sugar (AS) and DSSAT/CANEGRO (DC) models to determine their structural differences, and how these differences affect their predictions of crop growth and production. The AS model under predicted yield at the hotter sites, because the algorithm for computing the degree-days is… (More)
