ICRISAT – India
Patancheru 502 324
The program will describe a practical approach for simulating effects of soil, weather, management, and genetic factors on crop production. It will cover procedures for collecting and managing crop, weather and soil data towards adapting models for applications. Participants will analyze management alternatives for single seasons and for crop rotations. Applications of models for studying water and nutrient management and adaptation to climate change will be emphasized. Lectures will alternate with hands-on assignments using the DSSAT crop models and software package. Ample time will be used to discuss capabilities and limitations of the models and appropriate methods for their use.
Interested persons may enroll as soon as possible. Enrollment in this course is limited to 20 participants, and registrations will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis. Advance registration is required and we encourage your early registration to secure a seat in this course.
