How to respond to challenges in agricultural modelling and software development?

 On 29 November, another colloquium at the Institute of Landscape Systems Analysis (LSA) took place. PhD Tommaso Stella reported on “Challenges in agricultural modelling and software: the approach of the BioMA framework” and put his experience with the BioMA modelling platform in the context of the current redirection of the LSA model development strategy.

The Colloquium was chaired by the institute’s head Dr. Claas Nendel. The presentation and discussion was followed by 12 ZALF members and focused on integrated modelling approaches within the BioMA framework (Biophysical Model Applications framework) in order to deal with some long-standing problems affecting agricultural modelling, mainly related to software implementation, reuse and quality testing. The approach of the BioMA framework was presented as one of the possible ways to overcome current shortcomings, providing a platform to rapidly bridge from prototypes to operational applications and, at the same time, a loose collection of objects reusable either standalone or in different frameworks.

For ZALF, this colloquium was an insight into the way other research groups in Europe are dealing with some common problems, and an opportunity to evaluate some ideas for the development and the implementation of a framework to harmonize the available models for the simulation of biophysical systems.
