Epic is a continuous simulation model used to study the long-term effects of various soil erosion factors on crop production. Epic is a public domain model for studying the impact of soil erosion on crop production in more than 60 countries in Asia, South America and Europe. The model is used to study soil erosion, economic factors, hydrological models, weather effects, nutrition, plant growth dynamics and crop management. The main components of the epic are weather simulation, hydrology, erosion deposition, nutrient cycling, pesticide fate, plant growth, soil temperature, farming, economy and plant environmental control. Epic assessed the impact of soil erosion on productivity and predicted the impact of management decisions on soil, water, nutrient and pesticide movement, as well as their combined effects on soil fertility and managed soil loss, water quality and crop yield.
