Optimization of APSIM NG using factorial simulations

Split apsimx into individual simulations Generate the parameter spaces and prepare the task list for parallel calculation Run all tasks in cluster to collect results Develop scripts to run individual task on HTCondor Merge simulated values of all treatments for the target cultivars.

Calibrate APSIM-Wheat model

Calibration is a common task to use crop model (e.g. APSIM to simulate field experiments. It is also tricky to pick up which parameters are used to optimize. This post summarised my experience to calibrate APSIM Wheat model in classic and next generation.
