It will be demonstrated how including genetic information may contribute to model-based ideotyping, model-based explorations of ecological distribution of varieties and model-based marker-based selection. After successful completion of this course students are expected to be able to: - analyse in quantitative terms the primary processes in crop production; - explain the functioning of crops in relation to functional-structural relations; - quantify genotype environment interactions; - understand scientific approaches in which genetic information is included in crop models; - apply in-depth crop physiological knowledge under a wide range of environmental conditions; - use and apply plant and crop physiological knowledge for crop improvement and crop management.
Course description and literature will be provided through MyPortal.
