Why work with them / What was done

Crop simulation modelling with SSM (Simple Simulation Modelling) on various grain legume crops. Current efforts are on expanding the use of crop models to a wide range of legume species (groundnut, bean, cowpea, chickpea, soybean, lentils, fababena, pigeonpea), making systematic tests for robustness, training young scientists to use the model and enrich the crop model with new capabilities. We have now a very active SSM modelling group involving several institutions (NCSU, Gorgan University, Montpellier Supagro, ICRISAT, ICARDA).
