International Symposium on "Crop Modelling for Agriculture and Food Security under Global Change" : ARVALIS Institut du végétal made its works known in presenting two posters on CHN crop (March 2016).

With more than 300 scientists from 47 nations, the iCROPM Symposium in Berlin brought together the major part of the international crop modellers’ scene to exchange ideas on improvement and application of crop simulation models to better support agricultural production and food security under global change.

The 3-day symposium, 15-17 March, 2016, hosted by the Leibniz Centre for Agricultural Landscape Research (ZALF), was jointly organised by the MACSUR and AgMIP research networks. The presentations centred on recent scientific work related to model improvement, generation and use of experimental data, and on advancements in model applications considering new methods of model intercomparison, uncertainty propagation and scaling.
