DSSAT Training Workshops

The overall goal of this annual training program is to familiarize participants with a comprehensive computer model for the simulation of crop growth and yield, soil and plant water, nutrient and carbon dynamics and their application to real world problems. Specifically the program focuses on:

  • Operation of the latest version of Decision Support System for Agrotechnology Transfer (DSSAT)
  • Description of the DSSAT-Cropping System Model, CSM and its modules, such as CROPGRO, and CERES, and the science embedded in the models
  • Minimum data requirements and experimental data collection for systems simulation
  • Integration of crop simulation models with database management and Geographical Information Systems
  • Application of the DSSAT-CSM model to improve management of cropping systems
