Nitrogen (N) is an essential nutrient for many crops including corn and soybean. However, its leaching into groundwater is a serious cause of concern for environmental and public health. The amount of N leaching is closely linked to soil water drainage and rainfall. Prediction of N leaching in cropping systems is critical to the improvement of crop management through the reduction of N leaching. Visualizations can help understand uncertainty in the prediction of N leaching in soil. The uncertainty in N leaching originates from uncertainty in many parameters, such as weather predictions, soil properties, and the information entered by the user (e.g. N fertilizer). We have developed a platform to assist comprehending the relationship between various input parameters and N leaching. Our platform can reveal N leaching with uncertainty analysis and visualization of different parameters.
