Systematic Tool for Analyzing Resources (STAR)

This project brief describes the Systematic Tool for Analyzing Resources (STAR) developed by Stone. STAR is a web-based modeling tool for simulating the impacts of alternative conservation practices applied across individual farms to help government scientists conduct more efficient resource assessments. STAR incorporates the Agricultural Policy/Environmental Extender (APEX) model to help scientists determine the applicability and effectiveness of a range of farm-scale nutrient management and conservation plans.
