Agricultural Model Intercomparison and Improvement Project (AgMIP) Tools

    Agricultural Model Intercomparison and Improvement Project (AgMIP) datasets are stored in the harmonized AgMIP Crop Experiment (ACE) format. Translation tools available for download at [http://tools.agmip.org/](http://tools.agmip.org/) allow re-formatting of the data to model-specific formats for various crop simulation models.

    Agricultural Conservation Planning Framework (ACPF) Toolbox

      The Agricultural Conservation Planning Framework (ACPF) Toolbox software includes tools to process the LiDAR-based digital elevation models for hydrologic analysis, which then allows a series of prioritization, riparian classification, and conservation-practice placement tools to be used. These toolsets identify agricultural fields most prone to deliver runoff directly to streams, map and classify riparian zones to inform whole-watershed riparian corridor management, and estimate the extent of tile drainage in the watershed. The software maps out suites of locations appropriate to install each of several types of conservation practices. These practice-placement opportunities are mapped for practices including controlled drainage, grassed waterways, water and sediment control basins, and nutrient removal wetlands. Rather than making any recommendations, ACPF provides an inventory of watershed assessment data and conservation placement opportunities across a watershed, in order to inform local watershed planning.
