Research focus: Evaluation of the impact of climate change on maize (Zea mays L.) production via crop simulation modelling.
Home Institution: Ethiopian Institutes of Agricultural Research
Host institution: University of Cape Town, South Africa.
Area of research: Biometrics, GIS and agrometeorology research.
The purpose of this research is to formulate adaptation options, which should be practical, affordable and acceptable to farmers through quantifying the impact of observed climate variability and possible future changes on maize crop production using a state-of-the-art dynamical crop simulation models.
