Eucalyptus Model

A model for Eucalyptus plantations has been released in APSIM Next Generation. The current version of the model is suitable for sub-tropical genotypes (e.g. Eucalyptus grandis, E. urophylla, E. saligna, and their hybrids) grown in temperate to tropical environments, as it has been validated and tested on data from multiple sites in Australia and Brazil. This model is suitable for broad-scale industrial plantations, but with further calibration and testing could be suitable for different management settings (e.g. agroforestry applications), or for different genotypes (e.g. temperate plantation genotypes). Examples provided include N-fertilising, irrigation, weeds, harvesting and replanting. The APSIM framework provides a flexible basis on which to further develop this model for both commercial and non-commercial applications. For commercial access, please email apsim@csiro.au

APSIM Training - 20th and 21st February 2019

The next APSIM Training Workshop will be held in Brisbane on the 20th and 21st of February. 

The 2 day course is aimed at providing training in the use of the Agricultural Production Systems sIMulator (APSIM) focusing on the user interface. It is very 'hands on' with a mix of short presentations and tutorials relevant to research activities.

The course has been designed for both beginners and more advanced users who have developed simulations and require specific technical assistance. It will focus on individual needs with tutors providing one-on-one assistance. Common issues will be summarised and presented as more formal group tutorials.

The course will be limited to a maximum of 12 participants and can be tailored to meet specific needs of individuals and groups. A minimum of 10 participants will be required to run the course.

COURSE REQUIREMENTS

To successfully undertake this course you will need to have:

  • A Laptop PC:
  • A licensed copy of APSIM version 7.10 installed on the laptop;
  • For advanced users, current simulations you are working on, or background data for building simulations;
  • Organised all travel and accommodation associated with your training.

If you would like to register or have any questions, please email apsim@csiro.au

A simple demonstration of connecting APSIM to optimisation techniques

The APSIM Initiative Reference Panel has provided two examples for connecting APSIM to optimisation techniques.  These serve to demonstrate contrasting approaches in connecting APSIM to optimisation software.

nasapower: NASA POWER Global Meteorology, Surface Solar Energy and Climatology Data Client

International users of APSIM can now enjoy easy access to APSIM metrological files (.met files) from NASA POWER via a new R package developed by USQ’s Associate Professor of Field Crops Pathology Dr Adam Sparks called nasapower now available on CRAN.  One of the functions in this new package takes the NASA POWER agroclimatology data and reformats it into an APSIM .met file for use in APSIM simulations.  Information and documentation for the new package can be found at https://ropensci.github.io/nasapower/.

FEATURES

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.
