Description

LINTUL-4 is a generic and simple 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.

Background information
Articles

Main crop processes in LINTUL-4 model are described in the article by Shibu about the LINTUL model for rice; note that LINTUL-4 can be used for about 20 different crop types.

Examples

None

Applications & Use

LINTUL-4 is presently used within the AgMIP wheat model comparison. Results are not yet available.
