“How to compile and run DSSAT on Linux?” Good question.
The largest crop modeling workshop of the year, the DSSAT 2017 International Training Program, was successfully held at the University of Georgia – Griffin Campus from May 15 – 20, 2017.
During the week of January 9 through 13, 2017 a group of DSSAT developers met at Oklahoma State University for the 6th DSSAT Development Sprint.
At a recent workshop participants were trained on how to reliably simulate crop yields over space, and use aggregated forecasts to improve food security on sub-national to national scales using the CCAFS Regional Agricultural Forecasting Toolbox (CRAFT).
During the week of October 24 – 28, 2016, a group of 35 agricultural scientists from 11 research institutes in Cuba met at Universidad Agraria de la Habana, located in San Jose de las Lajas, to learn about the use of crop growth simulation models.
The CCAFS Regional Agriculture Crop Forecasting Toolkit (CRAFT) was developed using DSSAT and tested to estimate in-season crop yields for wheat and paddy in Nepal.
The DSSAT Foundation will be sponsoring the 20th Annual Open Forum on Crop Modeling and Decision Support Systems during this year’s ASA-CSSA-SSSA 2016 International Annual Meetings. The Forum is scheduled for November 7, 2016, from 7:30 – 9:00 pm in Maryvale A, Sheraton Grand Hotel, Phoenix, AZ.
