Seminar of users of the STICS crop model

The XIII STICS seminar will take place at Bordeaux from

November, 13th to 16th, 2023.

  • This STICS seminar aims to bring together the designers, developers and users of the STICS crop model to present and to share the latest scientific advances of the model, the cases studies with STICS model and lead the collective thoughts on the development strategy of the model and tools, to address agronomic and environmental issues and to support the agroecological transitions.

For more information.


New version available

version V10.0

A lot of new things in the STICS planet!

To download here,

  • A new version of the model with better consideration of reserves (carbon and nitrogen) for perennial crops, a dynamic description of the N demand and mortality of root (and the possibility to distinct 2 classes of roots), the improvement of cut dynamics on the production of biomass (alfalfa), the possibility of perennial crop destruction and the effects on crop successions.
  • The evaluation of this new version on our database, including the evaluation of the plants for which the new options have been activated and calibrated (winter wheat and miscanthus) and still available in the doc directory.
  • A new version of the JavaStics interface mainly taking into account an upgrade of the version of Java and a cleanup of the code, the modifications of input files, improvements of the parameter optimization tool and the replacement of the proprietary libraries of minimization by open libraries.

To translate your workspaces,


  • The evolving and open access STICS Open Book (downloadable here), describing the formalisms of the model and associated with the data of the standard version of the model.

And still the forum to post your questions

The code source is available here
