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

FEATURES

APSIM next generation

Over 24 years, the Agricultural Production Systems sIMulator (APSIM) has grown from a farming systems framework used by a small number of people, into a large collection of models used by many thousands of modellers internationally. The software consists of many hundreds of thousands of lines of code in multiple programming languages. This infrastructure has successfully integrated a diverse range of models but isn’t capable of easily meeting new demands from modellers. For these reasons, the APSIM Initiative has begun developing a next generation of APSIM (dubbed APSIM next generation) that is a completely new application with no legacy code and designed to run across different platforms. Currently APSIM next generation has limited capability and isn't quite ready for mainstream use. However, if your modelling problems fits within the specified capability, or you simply wish to evaluate this release, then it can be downloaded from the APSIM registration page (look for 'next generation' in the version drop down box). More information can also be found here.

APSIM Oil Palm Model

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.

Agricultural Modelling Special Issue

In December 2014, the journal 'Environmental Modelling and Software' published the first part of a new Thematic Issue: "Agricultural systems modelling and software: current status and future prospects". Lead by Dean Holzworth (with 7 co-authors), the Thematic Issue explores the current status of the leading process based agricultural systems models. Models featured in the Issue include APSIM, AquaCrop, CropSyst, STICS / RECORD, APSIM PMF and APSIM OilPalm. There are also a range of other papers covering various aspects of modelling complex agricultural systems. For more information go to the following link.
Part 2 of the Thematic Issue (including a position paper) will be published mid 2015.

New APSIM Paper

The APSIM Initiative and key collaborators have been involved in the development of a new paper titled APSIM - Evolution towards a new generation of agricultural systems simulation. This paper updates the earlier work by Keating et al. (2003) and chronicles the changing external challenges and opportunities being placed on APSIM during the last decade. It also explores and discusses how APSIM has been evolving to a “next generation” framework with improved features and capabilities that allow its use in many diverse topics. The paper is now in print in the journal of Environmental Modelling & Software and available at the following link.

APSIM-Wheat: Documentation

Find out the details of the APSIM-Wheat module and understand how wheat crop is simulated in APSIM.

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.

The updated documentation can be found here.
