20 undergo training on use of analysis tool for rice production
The 20 training participants are researchers and scientists from the Instituto Nacional de Investigación Agropecuaria (Uruguay), Institute of Agricultural-Alimentary Research and Technology (Spain), the University of Gottingen (Germany), Mitsubishi Research Institute, Inc. (Japan), AfricaRice (Benin) and IRRI.
The training aims to help the participants become familiar with the basic structure and functions of this latest version of ORYZA2000, which features added functions. The program also covers data preparation for modeling studies, setting parameters, calibration of the model, interpretation of output, analysis of scenarios, and the use of the tool on participants’ respective datasets.
ORYZA2000 is an important tool that scientists can use to extrapolate their research results and verify various hypotheses prior to possible experimentation.
The training team at IRRI is composed of Tao Li, Ando Radanielson, Olivyn Angeles, Man Marcaida, and Mahlie Manalo, with Lolit Adriano as secretary.
