Training programme on “Linking geospatial technologies and agricultural system models to assess impact of climate change on natural resource management” concluded at ICAR-Indian Institute of Soil Science, Bhopal during 24 Oct to 2 Nov 2018

               The training programme sponsored by National Innovations on Climate Resilient Agriculture (NICRA), ICAR-CRIDA Hyderabad on “Linking geospatial technologies and agricultural system models to assess impact of climate change on natural resource management”, organized at ICAR-Indian Institute of Soil Sciences, Bhopal (24 October to 2 November 2018) was concluded on 2 November 2018. Dr. Anil Kumar Singh, Former VC RVSKVV, Gwalior and Ex DDG (NRM) was the chief guest at the inaugural function and Prof. (Dr.) Bhagwan Singh Chaudhary, Chair, Geophysics Department, KUK, Kurukshetra Haryana was the Chief Guest in the valedictory function in presence of Dr. Ashok K. Patra, Director, ICAR-IISS, Bhopal, DR. Rabi N. Sahoo and other dignitaries. Both the guests emphasized the importance of modelling and geospatial technologies in natural resource management and climate change adaptation and mitigation studies in agriculture. They urged the trainees to use the experience and learning gained from the training programme for their future research endeavour.

         Participants from various ICAR Institutes, SAUs and KVKs took part in the training programme enthusiastically. During the course of the training programme, the trainees were exposed to introduction of crop simulation modelling; minimum dataset and information requirements of the agricultural system models; parameterization and validation of simulation models; simulating water and nutrient limiting production systems; modelling soil organic carbon dynamics in crops and cropping systems; geospatial technologies and application of remote sensing in natural resource management, precision farming and climate data downloading information. They also got chance to learn farming system modelling which is very important in the context of climate change. The trainees got an opportunity to work with a number of crop simulation and carbon models including APSIM, DNDC and FSR models etc. which are helpful in addressing the adaptive and mitigation measures for the farming community in the context of climate change.
