2020 Convention session – Phenotyping & Remote Sensing to Facilitate Minimum Data Set Requirements for Crop Simulation Modeling
This session by the Crop Modeling Community of Practice aired live at the virtual 2020 CGIAR Convention on Big Data in Agriculture.
Crop models can require extensive and/or intensive data sets to drive simulations as well as for calibration purposes. While some of the information is straightforward, such as agronomic performance traits (e.g. yield, phenology) as well as weather data, other types of data require significant resources such as green area index, light interception and water and nitrogen availability in the soil. As a result, the vast majority of field data sets are not ‘model friendly’, lacking key inputs required for simulation purposes. This workshop will discuss ideas on how the digital technologies such as remote sensing for high throughput phenotyping can supplement or potentially serve as proxies for some of the harder to phenotype traits required, in different modelling contexts.
