2013 Training program on DSSAT version 4

The DSSAT Foundation, in collaboration with Washington State University, the University of Florida, the International Fertilizer Development Center, the University of Georgia, and various other institutions, will host a Training Program on DSSAT entitled DSSAT 2013 – “Assessing Crop Production, Nutrient Management, Climatic Risk and Environmental Sustainability with Simulation Models” from May 20 through May 25, 2013 at the University of Georgia Campus in Griffin, Georgia, USA. The overall goal of the workshop is to familiarize the workshop participants with the Decision Support System for Agrotechnology Transfer (DSSAT) and the Cropping System Model (CSM) for the simulation of crop growth and yield, soil and plant water, nutrient, and carbon dynamics, and the application of models to real world problems, such as crop and resource management, climate change and climate variability, carbon sequestration, food security, biofuels, and environmental sustainability.
