The relationship between climate, disease and coffee yield: optimizing management for smallholder farmers

PhD project - Biruk Ayalew Nurihun

In this study, we aim to model how spatial and temporal variation in the macro- and microclimate affects the coffee production and to explore future climate scenarios under different carbon-emission level. Also understand how these climatic variation and management interact to shape disease levels and coffee yield, and use these insights to optimize management decisions by smallholder farmers.
