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.

FEATURES

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.
