  • Evaluation of crop production impact under diverse soil characteristics (clay/sand content, organic matter, pH, fertility, compaction, etc.) and its interactions with different management practices (crop rotations, tillage, varieties, etc.).
  • Investigation of crop response (yield or quality) to changes in the cropping systems (nutrient input, soil management, planting date, row spacing, variety length, etc.) with deeper understanding on the benefits of crop rotation to soil health and crop performance.
  • Evaluation of nutrient use efficiency of cropping systems by calculating their nutrient budget. This information is valuable for a broad public involved in agriculture, from farmers to government agents or policy makers.
  • Development of online tools based on agronomic information to help decision makers in better managing their cropping systems.
