Description

LINTUL-3 is a crop growth model that can simulate crop growth under both potential, water limited and nitrogen limited conditions. The main simulated processes are: photosynthesis, phenological development, assimilate distribution to crop organs, water uptake, nitrogen uptake, evapo-transpiration, soil water balance, and nitrogen balance. Note that soil organic matter decomposition and Nitrogen dynamics are not modeled.
