Post-Graduate Course: The Art of Crop Modelling, Quantifying Crop Growth in Face of Global Food Security and Climate Effects
Excerpt:This course teaches the principles of crop growth modelling for early career researchers. Crop models allow to simulate the growth and development of annual and perennials crops, often in interaction with the environment (i.e. soil, nitrogen, water, air). Many different models are available, a recent inventory lead to a total of 250.
