The principal objectives of this study are : (1) to increase the knowledge of the agricultural properties of strongly weathered soils and their spatial variability, and (2) to explore the potential of existing, or somewhat adapted means and methodologies to assess biophysically obtainable production levels of land use systems envisaged on these soils. The research is conducted in two regions of Sáo Paulo State and one region in Rio Grande do Sul. The results of this study and revision of available literature illustratie the usefulness of crop growth simulation for land use systems analysis. - (AGD)
