Perspectives of the TERENO-SoilCan lysimeter to improve knowledge of changing climate effects on the prediction of key agro-ecosystems

Key goal of the project is to improve knowledge of changing climate effects on the prediction of key agro-ecosystems outcomes such as yield, biomass, groundwater recharge, ET. Step-1: Crop growth and soil water fluxes at erosion-affected arable sites: Using weighing lysimeter data for model inter-comparison Step-2: How can we predict key agronomic and environmental variables with calibrated crop models – a simulation of the space-for-time approach?” Step-3: “How good can we calibrate soil and crop models based on precision lysimeter data?””
