Computer based crop simulation model is the tool to understand the effects of the environments and the biophysical processes relating to the plants growth and yield formation. The model can also be applied for the decision support of the farmers for choosing best agronomic practices. This lecture introduces APSIM, one of the most widely used crop growth models in the world, and offers practical guidance for its usages. The attending students can also acquire the experimental methodologies for the data collection which are necessary to drive the model.
