About Crop Modeling CoP | CGIAR Platform for Big Data in Agriculture


Crop modeling science encompasses a wide range of quantitative applications based on the broad concept of parametrizing interactions within and among the main drivers of cropping systems.

These are namely: genotype, environment, management and socioeconomic factors (GEMS) to provide information and tools for decision support.

By promoting FAIR (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, Reusable) data principles, the CM-CoP fosters a culture that values GEMS data and enables its members to solve global grand challenges faster, better and at greater scale.

The CM-CoP has a virtual meeting space where crop modeling enthusiasts and specialists from 15 CGIAR Centers and other industry organizations can share ideas and resources, find collaborators and co-authors and participate in relevant discussions.
