ORYZA Training Program for Basic Applications
The overall goal of this training program is to familiarize participants with the basic functionalities and structure of the ORYZA ver.3 model, the minimum data requirement, experimental data collection for ORYZA model evaluation, the calibration of parameters, and the use of ORYZA on your own dataset.
- Demonstrate how processes of crop growth and development, water use, uptake of water, and nutrients and carbon dynamics can be simulated. Make extensive use of “hands-on” sessions that apply the ORYZA model to field experiments.
- Describe procedures for collecting and managing crop, experimental, weather, and soil data for model evaluation.
- Give participants the opportunity to work with their own data and determine the accuracy of the model for application to specific problems. Analyze management alternatives for single seasons or over long-term crop rotations.
