Title: APSIM Platform for Modeling and Simulation of Agricultural Systems: Overview, examples & applications
Date: 6 February 2020
Time: 4:00 PM CET (UTC + 1:00)

The Agricultural Production Systems sIMulator (APSIM) platform is widely used worldwide for modeling and simulation of agricultural systems. It contains a suite of modules that enable the simulation of systems for a diverse range of plant, animal, soil, climate, and management interactions. These modules include a diverse range of crops, pastures, trees, soil processes including water balance, N and P transformations, soil pH, erosion and a full range of management controls. APSIM resulted from a need for tools that provided accurate predictions of crop production in relation to climate, genotype, soil, and management factors while addressing the long-term resource management issues.

In this webinar, organized by the Crop Modeling Community of Practice in collaboration with the Geospatial CoP and the iCROPM, a panel of APSIM experts formed by Graeme Hammer, Scott Chapman, Greg McLean and Karine Chenu will present an overview of the platform, their experience, and some relevant examples. After their brief introduction, webinar attendees will have the opportunity to ask any APSIM-related questions.

Do you have questions about APSIM you would like to make to the panelists? Send them here to ensure they will be answered during the webinar.
