Title: Secondary data for crop modeling: Filling data gaps under lockdowns
Date: 15 May 2020
Time: 10:00 AM EDT (UTC – 4:00)
With the COVID-19 lockdowns imposed around the world, crop modeling researchers face challenges of conducting field trials and collecting primary data. While the field-collected data are still the best option for crop modeling studies, some of the data requirements might be filled using secondary data.
This webinar will present what secondary data are being used by CGIAR crop modeling researchers and discuss when to (and not to) use the secondary data in practice.
