Abstract

Land capability assessment is being developed to support the expansion of cropping in uplands of Cambodia. DSSAT (The Decision Support System for Agrotechnology Transfer), an agroecosystem model, was used to determine potential yields of field crops in Cambodia to assist in the rating land capability. This paper reports preliminary testing of the model with maize and soybean under Cambodian conditions.
