The AgMIP Gridded Crop Modeling Initiative (Ag-GRID)

Ag-GRID provides a central organizing hub for a new generation of gridded crop modeling activities within AgMIP. Ag-GRID leverages existing AgMIP strengths by bringing together AgMIP members from the climate, crop modeling, IT, economics, RAPs, scaling, and uncertainty teams to develop new initiatives for improving quality and access to gridded data, models, computing, and scenario development and coalesce the international community of large-scale gridded crop modelers around the most important topics at the interface of food and climate.

Ag-GRID is coordinated from the University of Chicago and Argonne National Laboratory Computation Institute, the NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies in New York City (the site of the AgMIP Coordination Office), and the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research in Germany. The Coordination Team is led by Joshua Elliott and Christoph Müller and welcomes questions, comments, requests, ideas, project proposals, or criticisms and can be contacted at
