Crop Production Package

Model Entry Point


Crop Production.

  • args['workspace_dir'] (str) – location into which all intermediate and output files should be placed.
  • args['results_suffix'] (str) – a string to append to output filenames
  • args['lookup_table'] (str) – filepath to a CSV table used to convert the crop code provided in the Crop Map to the crop name that can be used for searching through inputs and formatting outputs.
  • args['aoi_raster'] (str) – a GDAL-supported raster representing a crop management scenario.
  • args['dataset_dir'] (str) – the provided folder should contain a set of folders and data specified in the ‘Running the Model’ section of the model’s User Guide.
  • args['yield_function'] (str) – the method used to compute crop yield. Can be one of three: ‘observed’, ‘percentile’, and ‘regression’.
  • args['percentile_column'] (str) – for percentile yield function, the table column name must be provided so that the program can fetch the correct yield values for each climate bin.
  • args['fertilizer_dir'] (str) – path to folder that contains a set of GDAL-supported rasters representing the amount of Nitrogen (N), Phosphorous (P2O5), and Potash (K2O) applied to each area of land (kg/ha).
  • args['irrigation_raster'] (str) – filepath to a GDAL-supported raster representing whether irrigation occurs or not. A zero value indicates that no irrigation occurs. A one value indicates that irrigation occurs. If any other values are provided, irrigation is assumed to occur within that cell area.
  • args['compute_nutritional_contents'] (boolean) – if true, calculates nutrition from crop production and creates associated outputs.
  • args['nutrient_table'] (str) – filepath to a CSV table containing information about the nutrient contents of each crop.
  • args['compute_financial_analysis'] (boolean) – if true, calculates economic returns from crop production and creates associated outputs.
  • args['economics_table'] (str) – filepath to a CSV table containing information related to market price of a given crop and the costs involved with producing that crop.
