figSARRA-H:

A model particularly suited to analysing how the climate impacts the growth and potential yield of dry cereals in the Tropics: Millet, Sorghum, Maize and Upland Rice.

For analyses ranging from plot to region

SARRA-H integrates three major processes within the same daily loop:

fig

icoWith a simple set of input data enabling multiple simulation scenarios

fig

ico Objectives: Estimate and forecast biomass and potential yield

ico The 3 ‘U’s strategy (useful, usable and used):

Based on a strong network of partners in the North and especially in the South, making it possible to: 1) parameterize and check the relevance of the model in a tropical environment, 2) make headway in process conceptualization, 3) adapt the environment and interfaces in line with its use and users.

ico A diversity of application fields:

*Analysing climate risks from plot to regional scale *: impact of climate variability and change on yield and biomass (food security context)

*Monitoring crops during the season and predicting potential yields * (early warning system context)

Analysing the adaptation of smallholder strategies to their environment (resilience context):

ico Integrating AGRONOMY in multidisciplinary research:
