2020 Convention session – Disease Crop Modeling Advances & Challenges for Large-Scale Simulation Studies
This session by the Crop Modeling Community of Practice aired live at the virtual 2020 CGIAR Convention on Big Data in Agriculture.
Crop pests and diseases assessing and monitoring are important aspects of agricultural systems to consider for assuring food security in many parts of the world. Multidisciplinary approaches such as crop growth modeling integration with pests and disease modeling have advanced in this aspect to develop warning systems and crop damage assessments tools. In this session we present some aspects of crop disease modeling including minimum data requirements, integration of disease and crop growth models, and successful applications of crop disease modeling new technologies.
