This workshop will introduce the application of dynamic crop simulation models with emphasis on using models for understanding the Genotype x Environment x Management interactions. Examples from the Decision Support System for Agrotechnology Transfer (DSSAT) will be shown.

DSSAT is a free software application program that comprises dynamic crop growth simulation models for over 42 crops. It is supported by a range of utilities and apps for weather, soil, genetic, crop management, and observational experimental data, and includes example datasets for all crop models. The models simulate crop growth, development and yield as a function of the soil-plant-atmosphere dynamics.
