on Agricultural Production Systems in Southeast Asia
DSSAT
 
HATRI News – 5-9 March 2019
 
We have passed five days to join the Training Workshop on Crop Simulation Modelling and Effects of Climate Risks on Agricultural Production Systems in Southeast Asia due to Asia-Pacific Network for Global Change Research (APN-GCR) -,United Nations University Institute for the Advanced Study of Sustainability) from Japan; Institute for Sustainable Food Systems, University of FloridaFoudation DSSAT and High Agricultural Technology Research Institute for Mekong delta HATRI support,help at FortumerHotel Can Tho city
 
We welcome 21 participants from 13 province of Mekong delta and Tay Ninh attent this training / workshop.
 
The Opening Of The Training Workshop: Prof N. T.Lang said " Over the past 35 years Vietnamese farmers have been adapting to the changing environmental conditions by modifying and diversifying their production systems and water management. But the recent and forecasted agro-hydrological changes threaten the viability of these farming and social systems and subsequently food security in Vietnam. Some significant constraints which limit the ability of the farmers to adapt strategies include the availability of suitable cultivars, soil nutrient management options etc. However, the lack of information of the potential threats from climate change, climate variability, soil carbon sequestration and other environmental sustainability have become vital for improved crop production. Therefore, crop simulation models make an important contribution to both advancing our understanding of the developments that determine crop responses and predicting crop performance, resource use and environmental impacts for different environmental and management scenarios."
 
Dr Mohan. Lead of the projects report: This workshop and training program promotes capacity to increase collaboration with scientists and communities; the crop simulation modelling provides significant strategies and technologies to build cropping systems more resilient against climate change.
 
The overall goal of this training is to promote capacity to increase collaboration with scientists and communities and the crop simulation models provides significant strategies and technologies to build cropping systems more resilient against climate change.
 Particularly, this training workshop will focus on:
Goal • Gain practical experience in working with a comprehensive computer model for the simulation of crop growth, development, and yield, and soil and plant water, nutrient and carbon dynamics. • Application of computer models to real world problems
 
Specific Objectives • Operation of the windows-based Decision Support System for Agrotechnology Transfer (DSSAT) • Description of the DSSAT-Cropping System Model (CSM) and its modules, including CROPGRO and CERES and the science behind the models.
 
Minimum data requirements and experimental data collection for systems simulation
  • Application of the DSSAT-CSM model to improve management of cropping systems.
  • Approach
  • Formal lectures
  • Computer exercises
  • Work with your own data or data provided by the faculty
  • Discussion of results
  • Informal interaction with faculty
  • Applications of DSSAT-CSM model to improve management of cropping systems and its associated crop simulation models such as CERES.
  • Minimum data requirements and experimental data collection for system simulations using windows-based Decision Support System for Agrotechnology Transfer (DSSAT) version 4.7 software (www.DSSAT.org)
  • Strengthening technical and scientific abilities by enhancing collaboration between National Agricultural Research System (NARS), policymakers, and local communities with International organizations
 
During the 5 days we are very much for Prof GerritHoogenboomand Dr Mohan guide Excercises: Running a Crop Model in DSSAT; Sensitivity Analysis Tool; Simulating Potential Production; Cultivar Sentivity Analyses;Cultivar Coeffiecient Calibration using the GLUE Tool;Calibration and Evaluation of the DSSAT Models using In Seasons Growth Analysis data;Experiments and Data for Model Evaluation and Aplication; Seasonal Analysis; Creating Crop Measurement Files for model Evaluation;Nitrogen limited Production; Water Limited Production; discussion, our knowledge sharing, enthusiasticallysuch as Minimum Data Set Concept;Simulating Phenological Development; Learning the DSSAT File System;Simulating Water Limited Production: Soil Water Balance;Soil Data Inputs and Utilities;Soil Data Inputs and UtilitiesWater, Weather, Soil.

We are very grapteful for the kind support by Dr. GeethaMohan (United Nations University Institute for the Advanced Study of Sustainability) from Japan. Prof GerritHoogenboom, Institute for Sustainable Food Systems, University of Florida.They took from very far discance toAmerican and Japan to VietNam, in particular Mekong delta, to share the innovative approaches and Applications of DSSAT-CSM model to improve management of cropping systems and its associated crop simulation models such as CERES.

We have learned from GerritHoogenboom University of Floridatherenovel potputs on: Minimum data requirements and experimental data collection for system simulations using windows-based Decision Support System for Agrotechnology Transfer (DSSAT) version 4.7 software (www.DSSAT.org).
 
21 particitants be received by certified by GerritHoogenboom University of Florida, Dr. Geetha Mohan (United Nations University Institute for the Advanced Study of Sustainability) from Japan and Prof Bui Chi buu and N T Lang (HATRI).
 
Closing remarks/ workshop by Prof.Nguyen thi Lang
Prof. Nguyen thi Lang said: “To digest innediately the introduction it is not avaible right now, but we hope that is a good opporturity to understand the way to shorten our achievenments on Crop Simulation Modelling and Effects of Climate Risks on Agricultural Production Systems in VietNam. We would appreciate very much if you could look for a future cooperation mutually to strenghthen our scientific manpower for next program
Suggested cooperation with direction to the University about issues thank you University of Union for much valuable knowledge about appreciating The DSSAT Cropping System Model (CSM) is the most important component of DSSAT Version 4.7. It is important to understand the operation and performance of the crop models in the CSM before they can be applied to real world situations and problems such as precision farming and management to share experience of research the results of scientific research”. Thanks United Nations University Institute for the Advanced Study of Sustainability) in Japan, Institute for Sustainable Food Systems, University of Florida, Foudation DSSAT, APN and HATRI and all of participants from Training/ Workshop. She also expressed her thanks to Asia-Pacific Network for Global Change Research (APN-GCR) -, United Nations University Institute for the Advanced Study of Sustainability) from Japan for continuously believing in what the training can contribute to productivity and rural poverty alleviation, and for supporting Crop Simulation Modelling and Effects of Climate Risks on Agricultural Production Systems in Southeast Asia.

Field days from Group training
Prof. NTLang, Director of High Agricultural Technology Research Institute for Mekong delta (HATRI) guide the participants. As part of the activity, participants visited field of HATRI at BinhThuy,Can Tho City. The participants toured the HATRI fields and demonstration site where they learned about the recently released sality tolerant variety and visiting to meet farmers or farmers association.
