Project "Modelling nutrient acquisition by crops with specific consideration of biopores" funded by DFG until 2017

The project proposal "Modelling nutrient acquisition by crops with specific consideration of biopores" is accepted by the DFG and will receive support until 2017. Using a two-compartment approach, the project develops specific submodels within the modelling framework SIMPLACE for the turnover and uptake of N and P within the soil matrix as well as in the soil biopores. In addition, findings and algorithms regarding the influence of biopore properties, root architecture and nutrient uptake from a higher resolution 3D root growth model running at the Research Center J├╝lich will be considered in the development of the field scale model solution.

Project "GlobE - Wetlands East Africa" funded by BMBF until 2016

The project proposal "Wetlands in East Africa: Reconciling future food production with environmental protection" is accepted by the BMBF and will receive support until 2016. The Crop Science group will analyze yield-gap data of the major economic crops of East-Africa and parametrize corresponding crop models for scenario analyses under jointly defined boundary conditions. These models will serve as an important basis for developing management and technology options as well conduction of impact assessment studies in the field.

Project "GlobE - BiomassWeb" funded by BMBF until 2016

The project proposal "Improving food security in Africa through increased system productivity of biomass-based value webs
(BiomassWeb)" is accepted by the BMBF and will receive support until 2016. The Crop Science group will contribute to the project by simulating crop productivity and resource use in the biomasswebs cassava and maize. The research will be focussed on the three African countries Ethiopia, Ghana and Nigeria.
