Elodie Ruelle

Research Officer- Biologic System Modelling

Research Interests

  • Simulating biological system using mechanistic models.
  • Predicting grass growth in real time on commercial farms.
  • Better understanding of the interaction between soil, grass management, the animals and grass growth.
  • Improving N use efficiency and reducing N leaching
  • Precision fertiliser application
  • Predicting animal intake at grazing
  • Climate adaptation

Current Projects

  • 2022PSS111: A systematic review and synthesis of climate adaptation research relevant for Irish agriculture and a research gap analysis and prioritisation
  • Climate adaptation internal project
    • Predict the impact of climate change on grass growth in Ireland and consequences and possible adaptation on Irish dairy farms
    • Predict the impact of climate change on crop growth in Ireland
    • Determining the best sward mixture adapted to future climate
    • Incorporating a clover sub-model into the MoSt GG model.
  • Live grass growth prediction using the MoSt GG model.
  • Predicting N leaching and N use efficiency of different system and management.
  • Model development (PBHDM and MoSt GG models)
