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. 

Examples can be found here:

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/.

Updated Instructions for Submission of Improvements to APSIM for Review

As a user of APSIM, you may access and modify all source code. As per the conditions agreed to on download, all modifications to APSIM must be submitted to the AI and be subject to the Reference Panel evaluation process before inclusion into the official APSIM release. Updated instructions for submitting Improvements to APSIM for review by the APSIM Initiative Reference Panel can be found here

It can be useful to notify the APSIM Initiative that you are planning on making an improvement to APSIM. This can often lead to others suggesting ideas or collaborators to work with. To do this you need to create an issue in GitHub with a description of what you intend doing. This is for APSIM 7.x and APSIM Next Generation.  Any queries, please email apsim@csiro.au.

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.
