IC-FAR: Llnking Long Term Observatories with Crop Systems Modeling For a better understanding of Climate Change Impact, and Adaptation StRategies for Italian Cropping Systems

Please note that the job is no longer active!

The main objective of this research is to validate, calibrate and substantially improve cropping systems models to evaluate their response to climate change and to select adaptation strategies to climate change for agricultural producers in Italy. This unit will be responsible for the application of the SALUS model which will be tested against a high quality LTEs in a systems approach that critically evaluates and improves the existing model capabilities for predicting short and long term soil and crop responses to management practices as affected by soil characteristics, carry over effects of soil organic matter decomposition, climate variability and climate change

Please note that the full description may be available in the national language since some job boards have their own publication policy. Thank you for your understanding!
