MixFarm ABM Model

Leigh Anderson | Published Thu Mar 3 04:28:33 2016

MixFarmABM Model examines the competitiveness of second-generation biofuel crops with existing crops and beef cows at the farm level and their impact on the farm structure.

This model uses ’satisficing’ as a model for farmers’ decision making to learn about influences of alternative decision-making models on simulation results and to exemplify a way to transform a rather theoretical concept into a feasible decision-making model for agent-based farming models.

Simulation model for compliance behaviour

Esther Van Asselt Sjoukje A Osinga | Published Fri Oct 3 06:30:12 2014 | Last modified Tue Dec 8 10:48:10 2015

This model can be used to optimize intervention strategies for inspection services.

Alpine land-use allocation model - ALUAM-AB

Simon Briner | Published Tue Jan 31 08:19:13 2012 | Last modified Sat Apr 27 20:18:21 2013

A model for simulating farmers and foresters response on changing climate and changing socio-economic parameters. Modeled are changes in land-use as well as in ecosystem services provision.

A Multi-Agent Simulation Approach to Farmland Auction Markets

James Nolan | Published Wed Jun 22 03:04:02 2011 | Last modified Sat Apr 27 20:18:19 2013

This model explores the effects of agent interaction, information feedback, and adaptive learning in repeated auctions for farmland. It gathers information for three types of sealed-bid auctions, and one English auction and compares the auctions on the basis of several measures, including efficiency, price information revelation, and ability to handle repeated bidding and agent learning.

Population Control

David Shanafelt | Published Mon Dec 13 15:53:14 2010 | Last modified Sat Apr 27 20:18:43 2013

This model looks at the effects of a “control” on agent populations. Much like farmers spraying pesticides/herbicides to manage pest populations, the user sets a control management regiment to be use

Adoption of conservation practices

Irem Daloglu | Published Mon Oct 21 22:26:43 2013

This model is designed to investigate the impact of alternative policy approaches and changing land tenure dynamics on farmer adoption of conservation practices intended to increase the water quality.

ManPest

François Rebaudo | Published Tue Feb 25 13:29:52 2014 | Last modified Wed Aug 27 08:03:22 2014

The purpose of the model is to explore the impacts of global change on the ability of a community of farmers to adapt their practices to an agricultural pest.

a computer-based role-playing game simulating the interactions between farming activities, livestock herding and wildlife in a virtual landscape reproducing local socioecological dynamics at the periphery of Hwange National Park (Zimbabwe).

Irrigation Equity and Efficiency

Andrew Bell | Published Tue Aug 30 18:36:45 2016

The purpose of this model is to examine equity and efficiency in crop production across a system of irrigated farms, as a function of maintenance costs, assessed water fees, and the capacity of farmers to trade water rights among themselves.
