“The Babel’s tower of modelling: Is it possible for crop, cell, and molecular modellers to speak the same language?”
Crop simulation models integrate the temporal and multiple interaction of stress on crop growth each day under different environmental and management conditions. They are used in many research areas and for different purposes; researchers can use them to extrapolate data beyond field experimentation. The aim of this seminar is to show how crop simulation models are used as a tool for understanding the crop’s temporal and spatial variability within fields, and how farmers can use their outputs in making decisions for the season. And, their use in climate change impact studies.
