ORYZA Training Program for Beginners
31 March - 4 April 2014
ITS Lecture Room, IRRI, Philippines
Crop modeling and systems analysis have become important tools in modern agricultural research. The model ORYZA version 3 is a major rice crop model which simulates growth and development of rice in situations of potential production, water- , nitrogen-, and water-and-nitrogen - limitations. ORYZA has been used on:
Since 2009, Oryza2000 has been modified aimed mainly at abiotic stress and evolved from a rice crop model towards a rice-based cropping model. Several additional functions are currently being developed to enhance its capabilities for above mentioned application studies and also additional functions for severe abiotic stress, interaction of water and nitrogen, and continuous mono-culture rice cropping system.
As the successor of ORYZA2000, the ORYZA version 3 was released and the Crop Modeling Group of International Rice Research Institute (IRRI) wishes to assist the current and potential ORYZA users during the transition through this short training course.
Program Goal and Objectives
The overall goal of this training program is to familiarize participants with the basic functionalities and structure of the ORYZA (V3) model, the minimum data requirement, experimental data collection for ORYZA model evaluation, the calibration of parameters, and the use ORYZA on your own dataset.
