Poste :

Research assistant on “Crop growth and yield production of Cereal in Morocco”


Project description :


Due to the growing population rate that imposes a rising per-capita demand for cereal, the county is highly dependent on cereal imports. Moreover, there is high variability in the yield across provinces and a growing gaps between simulated yield and actual yields of farmers. Therefore, crop modeling could be used to quantify this yield fluctuation, determine the yield gaps, and define context-specific appropriate interventions to address the low yield problems. The candidate will work on several models that help to understand the factors which drive the yield gaps and to come up with decisions and recommendations for Moroccan farmers. This research will also serve as a baseline study for subsequent research in the domain of wheat production in Morocco.

Main responsibilities :


The selected candidates will be expected to :

  • Extract and analyze the data for estimating and forecasting the yields of specific crops regions in Morocco by reviewing the literature and unpublished experimental data.

  • Publish the results in peer-reviewed scientific journals
