Beskrivning av projektet
DivCSA aims for supporting the development of Northern cropping systems towards Climate-Smart agriculture. The project develops an integrated assessment framework for diversified cropping systems that allows assessment of their potential to increase productivity, enhance resilience and mitigate greenhouse gas emissions. The project creates novel data-based methods applying both optical satellite data and large-scale, and field-scale, long-term datasets. Agroecosystem simulation tools will be improved so that they efficiently cover dynamic processes important for crop growth responses, carbon and nitrogen balances and related emissions. Diversified cropping systems for future climate conditions will be designed and their resilience and mitigation potential under changing climate will be assessed. Global socio-economic scenarios and price scenarios in the economic models will be designed and the value of diversified cropping systems demonstrated with comprehensive integrated assessment.
