Simulate Agricultural Production and Evolution of Pesticide Resistance

Simulates individual-based models of agricultural pest management and the evolution of pesticide resistance. Management occurs on a spatially explicit landscape that is divided into an arbitrary number of farms that can grow one of up to 10 crops and apply one of up to 10 pesticides. Pest genomes are modelled in a way that allows for any number of pest traits with an arbitrary covariance structure that is constructed using an evolutionary algorithm in the mine_gmatrix() function. Simulations are then run using the run_farm_sim() function. This package thereby allows for highly mechanistic social-ecological models of the evolution of pesticide resistance under different types of crop rotation and pesticide application regimes.
