Estimates of crop losses caused by ambient ozone are usually based on results from fumigation experiments performed on adequately watered crops. However, drought frequently affects crop growth, and moisture stress has been found to retard the appearance of ozone injury. To evaluate the effect of drought, a model was constructed that computes the influence of moistures stress on yield losses caused by ozone. The model was calibrated and run for soybean (Glycine max (L.) Merr.) using soil characteristics, weather, and ozone inputs from the Corn Belt states (Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Missouri, and Ohio).
