Partners North America

The AgMIP community includes collaborators from around the globe in the comparison and improvement of agricultural models. These teams investigate ways the models can be used to evaluate likely changes in crop production and economic conditions under current and future climate, farming, and societal conditions. Below are listed the North American leaders of ongoing AgMIP projects and links to collaborating North American institutions. Click on a project name to read more about team activities and members.
