I've changed the element name from <dormancy> to <dormant> as per John H's suggestion in the APSIM Forum.

When requesting a lucerne crop to go dormant through the following manager script:

 

if (today = date('1-apr-2007') then
lucerne dormancy
endif

 

Apsim returns the following:

 

1 April 2007(Day of year=91), Empty manager:
     Manager sending message :- lucerne dormancy
1 April 2007(Day of year=91):
     !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
                      APSIM  Fatal  Error
                      -------------------
     Cannot find a value for parameter: class_action
     Component name: lucerne
     !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

Changing segment labels in the lucerne.xml file from

 

   <dormancy>
   ...
   </dormancy>

to

   <dormant>
   ...
   </dormant>

 

corrects the problem
