STIN (STress INdex) is an empirical wheat yield model. It is based on the assumption that wheat yields are a function of soil moisture at sowing (sowing date) and the timing/amount of rainfall during the growing season. Outputs are soil moisture at sowing and final crop yield. It is used to forecast shire, state, and national wheat yields.

WHEATMAN plus BARLEYPLAN estimates and compares outcomes resulting from different farming options involving wheat, barley, and chickpeas. It assists with the choice of planting time, variety, and fertilizer strategy. It can also be used to compare many production and economic factors (such as gross margins) between properties and/or paddocks.

Woodruff, 1992
