B4. Agricultural systems

This session accepts papers that interface models and simulation studies based on mathematical and biological principles with specific application to the agricultural industries. The papers could encompass cropping, horticultural, livestock (intensive and extensive), fisheries and forestry industries, either micro or macro in nature. For example, a micro paper may tackle a specific problem within an agricultural system, or alternatively a macro paper may describe and discusses a decision support tool used to improve the production and profitability of an agricultural industry.
