We are using a spatially-explicit version of the QUEFTS model (Janssen et al. 1990) to predict maize yield responses to fertilizer applications in Tanzania, Ethiopia and Nigeria. This is the basis for a set of profitability exercises.
The student will work closely with other project researchers. In addition to primary data analysis, the student may contribute to secondary data analysis (e.g. literature review) and writing up of results.
Agronomy background, knowledge of the QUEFTS model, programming skills in the R language.
