University of Southern Queensland joins the APSIM initiative.

The APSIM initiative has been further strengthened with the University of Southern Queensland (USQ) recently joining the APSIM initiative (AI) as a member. 

USQ brings an extensive range of expertise to the AI collaboration including:

  • Cropping and grazing system
  • Climate Science
  • Bio-economics
  • Interface design
  • Data analytics
  • App and decision support tool design and development
  • Development of educational materials using APSIM

USQ has been an active user of APSIM in its research and educational activities and its membership reflects its dedication to the continued improvement of the model’s science and applications.

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-Wheat: Documentation

Author: Chris Murphy/Tuesday, 29 April 2014/Categories: Features

Find out the details of the APSIM-Wheat module and understand how wheat crop is simulated in APSIM (current for v7.5 R3008).

This updated documentation presents the processes modelled in APSIM-Wheat, and gives the equations and defaults parameter values that are used by the model. Graphic illustrations and figures have been added to help the understanding on how the model is functioning.

APSIM-Wheat simulates wheat growth and development at a daily time step, in response to the climatic factors (radiation, temperature and rain), soil characteristics and management practices.

The documentation presents in details the different processes involved, including crop phenology, biomass accumulation, partitioning and re-translocation, as well as root, leaf and grain development. Response to water limitation and nitrogen are also documented and a list of the main reference and model parameters is given at the end of the document.

The updated documentation can be found here.
