  Crop Systems And Global Change Lab

Research Leader
Vangimalla R. Reddy, Plant Physiologist

This Lab is a research unit in the

Henry A. Wallace Beltsville Agricultural Research Center.

Our research is directed toward developing crop simulation models for on-farm decision support and assessment of global climate change effects on crop yields and soil quality. We also carry out research to better understand the mechanisms controlling response and adaptation to carbon dioxide, light, water, temperature and soil chemistry. Much of our research is carried out in both indoor and outdoor growth chambers, greenhouses and field plots.
