158 Symposium--Incorporating Genomic Knowledge Into Crop Simulation Models

Oral Session
A03 Agroclimatology & Agronomic Modeling

Crop simulation models are power tools to address problems ranging from testing hypothesis related to biological responses to the environment to evaluating crop responses to different climate change scenarios. Plant genomics is providing valuable information about plant responses to the environment at a low level of plant organization. A current weakness in crop simulation models is how to incorporate genomic knowledge about responses to the environment, i.e., phenotypic plasticity, into crop simulation models. Crop simulation modeling has an important role to play in addressing problems associated with a world where climate change is a serious concern, the population is increasing, and land resources for agriculture are decreasing.
