Proceedings of the Thirty-ninth Meeting of the Agricultural Research Modellers' Group

  • L. A. CROMPTON (a1) and T. R. WHEELER (a1)

This group, which is concerned with the applications of mathematics to agricultural science, was formed in 1970 and has since met at approximately yearly intervals in London for one-day meetings. The thirty-ninth meeting of the group, chaired by Professor N. Crout of the University of Nottingham, was held in the Kohn Centre at the Royal Society, 6 Carlton House Terrace, London on Friday, 30 March 2007 when the following papers were read.
