Abstract

Data and R code bundled here provide a framework to implement the open source Hydrus-1D soil water model to characterize influence of crop rotation, weather, and soils on root zone water flux in a non-irrigated annual cultivation agricultural system. Simulated water flux is combined with soil nitrate concentrations averaged by 2-year rotational sequence to produce nitrate leaching estimates. This framework and the associated results are the analytical underpinning of a paper in revision at the journal of Agricultural Ecosystems & Environment. Included are all data necessary to run the simulations, code to run the simulations (Hydrus 1D software required - see Related Resources for archived version used), code to aggregate/plot the results, and all of the results.

Summary
Data and R code bundled here provide a framework to implement the open source Hydrus-1D soil water model to characterize influence of crop rotation, weather, and soils on root zone water flux in a non-irrigated annual cultivation agricultural system. Simulated water flux is combined with soil nitrate concentrations averaged by 2-year rotational sequence to produce nitrate leaching estimates. This framework and the associated results are the analytical underpinning of a paper in revision at the journal of Agricultural Ecosystems & Environment. Included are all data necessary to run the simulations, code to run the simulations (Hydrus 1D software required), code to aggregate/plot the results, and all of the results.


Software/Hardware
This code was successfully run in June 2020 using Hydrus-1D v4.16.0110 (Simunek et al., 2013) and R version 3.5.3, with a PC running Windows 10, 64-bit operating system with an Intel®Core ™ i7-6600U CPU@ 2.6 GHz processor, and 16.0 GB of RAM. R packages used in the analysis include: zoo, lubridate, reshape2, stringr, plyr, lattice, plotrix.

Purpose
This framework supports assessment of the interaction between weather, soils, and management on flux of water and nitrogen through soils. Mean precipitation storage efficiency (PSE) in fallow is visually discernible in the precipitation partitioning plot (Figure 6B). PSE is zero in the plot for soil depths where partitioning bar height is approximately equal to mean annual precipitation (up to zf = 25 cm). While we focused on clay loam soil texture, additional soil textures were assessed in the sensitivity analysis and could be explored further to expand relevance of this work. Meteorological data from other weather stations could also be input to the model. Caution should be taken if applying the crop coefficients we derived for central Montana in areas with notably different climate conditions.
