iCrop2016 – International Crop Modelling Symposium
March 15, 2016 - March 17, 2016
The symposium focuses on recent scientific work related to model improvement, generation and use of experimental data and on advancements in model application considering new methods of model intercomparison, uncertainty propagation and scaling.
While the main emphasis is on crops, progress on grassland and vegetation modelling will also be considered as well as new approaches of model implementation making use of recent software developments.
Improvements in crop and cropping system modelling refer to the field level but also to the higher landscape and regional level and include efforts to link crop modelling to genetics.
Studies to improve the modelling of relationships between plant production, resource use and management including effects on water and nutrient cycles are welcome.
Impact studies can refer to the wider context of global change but must emphasize methodological advances in assessments.
Integrated modelling studies linking crop and other models, e.g. economic models, may be considered but need to be presented from a crop modelling perspective.
