Description

LINTUL-1 is a simple model to simulate crop growth under potential growing conditions. This means that water and nutrient supply are assumed to be optimal and also the crop management.  Crop growth is calculated by assuming a simple relationship between the incoming solar radiation as intercepted by the crop canopy, and the crop growth
