Spatial Analysis of Fertilizer Profitability

Description of the topic

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.

Work expectations

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.

Required skills

Agronomy background, knowledge of the QUEFTS model, programming skills in the R language.
