Skoltech supercomputer helps scientists reveal most influential parameters for crop

Skoltech researchers have used the supercomputer to perform a very precise sensitivity analysis to reveal crucial parameters for different crop yields in the chernozem region of Russia, famous for its high-quality, fertile soil. Agricultural lands occupy 13 percent of the territory of Russia, droughts, dryness, humus reserves exhaustion are the major negative factor for national agriculture. Being able to simulate all possible variants, reveal the most crucial parameters without time-consuming and costly work is important.
