This Session aligns with the "minimum data requirements" webinar organized by the CoP on Crop Modeling recently.

Modelers are often frustrated because much of the research information available in crop data sets worldwide is either not in model-friendly format or lacks key information to permit reliable simulations. On the other hand, crop researchers need to have some general guidelines about the minimum data they need to collect for making their experimental data more useful for the research community. Different classes of 'minimum' modeling data sets that are more realistic for researchers are needed for permitting modeling to be performed at different levels of sophistication, while making far more of the crop data sets collected by researchers worldwide model friendly.

The objective of the session is working towards making more experimental data available for modeling purposes. Based on the feedback from experts, AgMIP members, and the Crop Modeling Community members, we will present data sets customized to different modeling purposes and agreed standards for different levels of data comprehensiveness–corresponding to the degree of sophistication of modeling objectives.
