iCROPM 2020 – Crop modelling for Agriculture and Food Security under Global Change
February 3 - February 5
Agriculture faces multiple crucial challenges. Achieving food security in the face of growing global population and increasing resource scarcity remains a central priority. When considered together with various global change drivers and the potential role of agriculture in climate mitigation, innovative approaches to growing crops are clearly required. Crop models are increasingly called upon to understand and disentangle the environmental factors driving crop production and to support the design of improved genotypes and new cropping systems, thereby assisting in the transformation of agriculture. While the development of connected sensors and the Internet of Things offer opportunities it also necessitates novel crop modelling approaches.
The aims of iCROPM2020 are to:
- review advances in crop modelling and identify challenges and new opportunities for future research;
- explore possible adaptation options of agriculture to climate and global changes and the contribution of agriculture to climate change mitigation.
