WEPS: Management and Crop Management Zone (CMZ) Templates

Human-controlled processes that affect the soil and field surface "state" are initiated by typical management activities such as tillage operations, crop selection, planting, harvesting, irrigation, etc. WEPS Crop Management Zone (CMZ) Templates are updated periodically by NRCS State CMZ Leads and NRCS database stewards. Each zip file contains common crop rotation / management systems for geographic areas (Northwest, North Central, Northeast, Southwest, South Central, Southeast CMZs). These multiple and single crop interval templates can be selected and customized with the WEPS management editor and used for WEPS Wind Erosion simulations.
