Webinar – Ask Gerrit and Cheryl Anything about DSSAT

CGIAR Webinar by the Platform for Big Data in Agriculture’s Community of Practice on Crop Modeling – Ask Gerrit and Cheryl Anything about DSSAT


The crop models in Decision Support System for Agrotechnology Transfer (DSSAT) simulate growth, development, and yield as a function of the soil-plant-atmosphere dynamics. For more than 30 years, DSSAT has been used for many applications ranging from genetic modeling to on-farm and precision management to regional assessments of the impact of climate variability and climate change, by researchers, educators, consultants, extension agents, growers, private industry, policy and decision-makers, and many others in over 150 countries worldwide.

DSSAT is the world’s most widely used crop modeling software, and it is freely available.

This webinar is jointly organized by the Crop Modeling CoP, supported by CGIAR Platform for Big Data in Agriculture, and the DSSAT Foundation.
