Quantification of the relation between water flow and crop growth is often carried out at large, even global, scale using models that have were developed using field scale experiments. Water limited crop growth under different land use and climate conditions is difficult and often carried out using simplified approaches to quantify (evapo)transpiration flows. This research intends to contribute to improved quantification of water and salinity limited crop growth and yield predictions using new approaches for water flow and crop growth modelling with a focus on transpiration as the essential link between soil water and crop growth. New methods will be tested using data sets from several field experiments. By upscaling this should result in methods and innovation at regional and global scale.
By September we will present an overview of SENSE dissertations on this page, with links to the full texts of the dissertations.
