Biochar model

Iowa State University (Archontoulis et al. 2016) have developed a biochar model for APSIM that integrates biochar knowledge and enables simulation of biochar effects within cropping systems.

This model has been released in APSIM  7.9 as an 'example'. It can be accessed by clicking 'New' from within the user interface and selecting the biochar folder. For more details see http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1111/gcbb.12314/full

APSIM Oil Palm Model

Author: Chris Murphy/Monday, 3 August 2015/Categories: Features

Palm oil is an important vegetable oil, produced from oil palm grown by many companies and more than a million smallholders worldwide. For growers to make decisions that are good for productivity and the environment, they need to know which practices are best for crop yield, soil fertility, aquatic ecosystems, and to minimise greenhouse gas emissions.   Recent collaboration between ACIAR, James Cook University, CSIRO and the PNG Oil Palm Research Association has developed an Oil Palm model for APSIM.  The model simulates palm growth and development in response to climate, soil and management.  Training workshops have been held in PNG, Indonesia and Malaysia.  A paper describing the new model is available at the following link.
