Abstract:

The major features and program flow of a damage assessment model for ten agricultural crops are described. Crop vulnerability to radiation damage both beta and gamma is differentiated by growth stage, total dose received, and dose rate. The model was developed for joint use by the Defense Civil Preparedness Agency, the U.S. Department of Agriculture, and the Office of Preparedness. The model was programmed in FORTRAN and designed to be compatible with the READY damage assessment system of the Mathematics and Computation Laboratory of the General Services Administration.
