Optimising nitrogen fertiliser application
Optimised nitrogen (N) fertilisation is a prerequisite for efficient agriculture. The advantages are obvious: the highest yields are achieved, expensive N surpluses are reduced, and N losses causing environmental pollution are prevented.
Smart farming with crop growth models
Process-based crop growth models are computer software programs that can simulate daily growth (e.g. biomass, yield) and development (e.g. emergence, flowering, harvest) of crops such as wheat, maize or potato.
