This is an end-of-project workshop proceedings with contributions from Africa, Asia, Australia and Latin America, focusing on improving capabilities in crop modelling for tropical cropping systems. The objective of this project was to use data from a range of sites in the tropics to test and improve the capability of the Agricultural Production Systems Simulator (APSIM) computer model to predict the decomposition of various organic inputs, the dynamics of N and P in the soil and crop yields.
