Description

The original LINTUL2 model to simulate water-limited production was modified to incorporate the development and growth of cassava under water-limited conditions. The model assumes three development phases as in CROPSIM-Cassava: i) planting to emergence, ii) emergence to first branching, iii) first branching to maturity or harvest.
