Sahila Beegum

Agricultural Engineer


Research Interests

My research interest is on testing and improving the mathematical representation of plant processes and plant-soil-atmospheric interactions in the existing crop simulation models. As we advance in our understanding of crop and its interaction with soil and environment, it is important to redesign or modify the existing crop models. This becomes more relevant with the climate change impact on agriculture, and with the changes in agricultural management practices.
