Sugar Validation -> copy C:\Development\apsim\canola\Validation to make life easier. Just create a Validation directory under Sugar just like the one under canola.

The build machine just looks for any Validation.bat files under C:\Development. So if it is there it will do it automatically. First thing you should do is you should download and install Apsim 6 (don’t uninstall Apsim 5.3) Then do an update so that your Development directory is up to date as well. The graph produced by Apsim report should be apsim prediction vs. observed. It should be a 45 degree angle ideally.  Start with Niel Huth’s validation dataset, and add the new ones later.

After talking with Jody Biggs and Peter Thorburn, their experiments only have a yield at the end. So they are not really suitable for validation. You are better off using Geoff’s experiments where he has done sampling throughout the growth of the crop so he has biomass accumulation from the start to the end of the crop. So get the experiment data off Geoff.

(You need experiments where he has not tinkered with the .ini file, or get the .ini file off him and make it the new .ini file for all APSIM. I know that some of the constants in the ini file are really parameters. But sugar module is getting converted to Plant module so then you might be able to fix the .ini file after the conversion. Don’t do it during. It will be too hard to do two things at once.)
