Current Sponsored Projects
- Development of Crop Phenotype Database for Climate Change and Crop Modeling Research
The overall goal of this research is to assess crop phenotypic characteristics of cultivars of major US crops (maize, potato, soybean and others) in a range of environmental conditions using the SPAR units, develop a crop phenotype database, and utilize the database for crop modeling and climate change research.
- Modeling Plant and Soil Processes in Garlic for Smart-Farm Technology
The objective of this project is to develop a process-based crop model for garlic based on our current understanding of its physiology, ecology, and agronomy. Specifically, we will 1) build a coupled soil-plant model that responds to soil water availability, and 2) apply the model for developing farm-level predictors of crop growth and yield in major garlic production areas.
- Rays for Roots - Integrating Backscatter X-ray Phenotyping, Modeling, and Genetics to Increase Carbon Sequestration and Switchgress Resource Use Efficiency
As part of a larger project that will develop and deploy a novel X-ray system and algorithms for non-destructive imaging of root traits for switchgrass, we will refine and improve modeling approaches to predict switchgrass below- and above-ground growth and C balance in a genotype-specific manner. We propose to develop and test a switchgrass physiology model that can be used for phenotype selection and genetic improvement associated with root traits.
