International Consortium for Sugarcane Modelling

Modelling World-Wide GxE Interaction (2011-2022)

To gain a better understanding of the physiological mechanisms underlying the genetic (G) variation in crop response to environmental (E) factors by monitoring and modelling key plant processes contributing to cane and sucrose yield in a common set of diverse cultivars (four to seven) grown in diverse environments from around the world (Florida, USA, Zimbabwe, South Africa and Reunion Island, France).


Incorporating CANEGRO into DSSAT (2006-2008)

The first project was the incorporation of an up-to-date Canegro sugarcane model into the DSSAT v4 software package and its validation against experimental data from four participating countries. Four members sponsored this project and three universities collaborated with the ICSM. The project started in May 2006 and ended in April 2008
