crop_type text string in mvOZCOT corrected to 'cotton'  (lowercase).

Problem can still be evident if crop_type not also corrected in existing .apsim files.  Once crop_type is set to lowercase 'cotton', then surfaceOM_wt_cotton reports correctly.

Will be reviewed and fixed in mvOZCOT only

Take the Continous Cotton example and add to the outputfile variables (output daily) -




You will see that at harvest, the cotton trash is added to surfaceOM_wt but does not appear in the cotton pool (surfaceOM_wt_cotton).

Note that the crop_type is reported with a capital C even though the ozcot.xml has lower case.

Some experimenting with maize worked as it should and the crop_type had a lower case m.

If the SurfaceOrganicMatter component is initialised with a Pool name with Cotton (capital C) then surfaceOM_wt_cotton is unknown for reporting.

It looks like the pool name is case sensitive and the cotton trash is going into a pool called Cotton which cannot be reported due to case.
