APSIM Downloads for 17/18

 

For the 2017/18 year there were 2103 non-commercial licenced users registered (an 11% increase on the previous year). This resulted in some 3775 downloads of APSIM (all versions as some users download older versions or use multiple versions).

APSIM is being used in 116 countries around the world, around the same number as the previous year. In Australia there are 482 users (up from 462 the previous year), with 157 in Queensland, an increase of 51 users. In New Zealand there were 46 users.

SILO Redevelopment

Are you aware that the SILO climate database has been redeveloped. The new system is now available for use. Some benefits of the new system:
• all datasets are now free of charge (supported by the Queensland Government’s Open Data initiative)
• data can now be distributed as they are licensed under the Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 licence
• users can now download gridded data (data are in NetCDF format). Please see the new web site for more information about accessing the gridded data.
• the new web interface is much easier to use than the old interface
• the new Application Programming Interface (API) enables users to query the amount of observed data available at each station
• patched point datasets are available at nearly all (18,700) stations (previously patched datasets were only available at a modest subset of the stations)

The APSIM SILO mirror based out of Toowoomba will stop working soon. You will need to switch the new SILO climate database as soon as possible.

You can find the SILO Getting Started Guide in the Technical documentation section of http://www.apsim.info/Documentation.aspx

International Crop Modeling Symposium Shows New Opportunities

Author: Chris Murphy/Tuesday, 10 May 2016/Categories: Features

More than 300 scientists from 47 nations met in Berlin, Germany, during March 15-17, 2016 to exchange ideas on improvement and application of crop simulation models to better predict agricultural production and food security under global climate change. The symposium was co-organized by MACSUR (Modelling European Agriculture with Climate Change for Food Security, http://macsur.eu/) and AgMIP (Agricultural Model Intercomparison and Improvement Project, http://www.agmip.org/), and was locally hosted by the Leibniz Centre for Agricultural Landscape Research (ZALF) in Müncheberg, Germany.

During the 3-day meeting, there were a total of 85 presentations and 130 poster presentations.  There were plenary lectures by James Jones (University of Florida, USA; The next Generation of Crop Models), Serge Savary (INRA, Toulouse, France; Models for Crop Diseases), Graeme Hammer (University of Queensland, Australia; Modelling and Genetics), Andrew J. Challinor (University of Leeds, UK; Models and Climate), Brian Keating (CSIRO, Australia; Models and Cropping Systems) and Achim Dobermann (Director of Rothamsted Research). Closing plenary lecture was given by Prof. Martin Kropff (Director General of the International Maize and Wheat Improvement Center, CIMMYT).

iCROPM2016 Symposium keynote presentations and abstracts are available at http://communications.ext.zalf.de/sites/crop-modelling/SitePages/Symposium%20Presentations.aspx
