Thematic Issue on Agricultural Systems Modelling and Software - Part II
This is the second part of the Thematic Issue on Agricultural Modelling and Software. The first part of the Thematic Issue comprised fifteen papers and appeared as Volume 62 in December 2014. This second part consists of another eleven articles, setting the state of the art in the field of agricultural modelling and software.
With this second part of the Thematic Issue, we conclude an effort that started over two years ago. The response of the community was far beyond our expectations and we wouldn’t be able to evaluate and select the submitted manuscripts without the help of more than 100 reviewers, many of whom reviewed more than two manuscripts.
Still, we consider that the selected 27 papers of the two issues only partially cover the full state-of-the-art of agricultural modelling and software. Despite this, we believe that we have captured to a great extent the drivers of change in agricultural modelling and software, identified key challenges and suggested a research agenda for the future.
