As declared by the EURO Council, the main purpose of the EWG’s is to encourage communication and research between small groups of members specialising in particular topics. The WG is open to people with different backgrounds (like industry, university, etc) and who are interested on OR methods and its application in Agriculture and Forest Management ...
Interesting article on social group dynamics using a non-linear dynamics model. The interesting thing is can the para,meters be managed to prevent small groups fading away. Â Is there a critical mass?
Nonlinear dynamics is invoked to explain a wide range of physical phenomena in which a number of factors play a part.
One of the ...

I helped my boss Eric Audsley produce this paper (link) for the OR Society 50 conference in York 2008. Luis Pla and I also wrote a related paper on the future prospects that made it to press at the second attempt with help from Andrew Higgins.
This #seminal #review paper summed up much of the thinking and research that I had been involved with for around a decade as a research scientist at the former Silsoe Research Institute at #Wrest Park Bedfordshire. (Wrest Park is a fabulous Stately home and was a gorgeous setting for UKs public sector agricultural engineering institute)
In many ...
A comprehensive treatment of farm business and control, with many examples drawn from farming practice.

This blog-site pulls together my professional interests in the application of Operational [Operations] Research to agriculture, forestry and related industries and extends to include their natural resources and chains or webs of secondary industries.
