The DSSAT 2017 & MWCropDSS International Training Program, was successfully held at the Majestic hotel, Sakon Nakhon, Thailand from August 20-25, 2017. Twelve 12 newly recruited researchers from the Rice Department, four staff from Geo-Informatics and Space Technology Development Agency (Public Organization) (GISTDA), and six staff from the Office of Agricultural Economics (OAE) attended the […]
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.
IFDC in collaboration with the University of Florida and the DSSAT Foundation sponsored an International Workshop on “Advanced Application of DSSAT – Assessing Crop Production, Nutrient Management, Climatic Risk and Environmental Sustainability with Simulation Models” held from October 5 – 12, 2016 in Arusha, Tanzania.
During the week of July 25 a small group of developers met in the Department of Agricultural and Biological Engineering at the University of Florida for 5th DSSAT Development Sprint. Some exciting new developments include a forage module for the simulation of perennial grasses, an expanded “automated irrigation” option that allows for stage specific irrigation, […]
Following the successes in the previous workshops, the 5th DSSAT Development Sprint Workshop will be held at the University of Florida in Gainesville, Florida, during the week of July 25. The main purpose of this workshop is for the DSSAT Developers to get together and polish the codebase collectively, but we also welcome anyone working with the DSSAT code and […]
