9:45- 11:00 am: Group Discussions Part 2

11:00 – 12:30 : Work group Crop Modeling reviews

12:30-13:30 Lunch break

13:30 Discussion on future activities and work plan 2018

Discussion topics:

  • Strengths available within the CG/partnerships, in terms of modeling capacity.
  • Identify the modeling skills, expertize, and data bases that could be shared among CG centers (i.e. for follow up with on-line tools and training workshops).
  • Identify near-wins where modelling can directly support crop management, breeding and policy decisions, that could be achieved following on directly from previous modelling work/proof of concept, with some modest additional investment.
  • Big picture modelling goals that could have impact across research areas, cropping systems, rural communities, etc..
  • Tools/methods required to achieve the above (that may be available and shared from other Centers, and/or requested in project proposals)
  • Definition of training needs
  • Discuss better organization and collection cross the CGIAR and partners of cultivar, climate and other data that would improve use of nursery trials and other station and on farm generated yield and crop data
  • High resolution data & Remote sensing integration into Precision Agriculture (PA)
  • Large scale applications and Agricultural monitoring
  • Crop prediction (e.g. machine learning)
  • Big Data applications for climate risk transfer and management through targeted ICTs and smart insurance solutions
  • How to collect data from farm groups to better understand crop productivity.
