Description

LINTUL-5 is a simple crop growth model to simulate crop growth of many different crops under potential, water limited, N limited and NPK limited crop growth conditions

Scale of application
field
Spatial resolution
ha
Key outputs

Crop production under potential, water limited, N limited and NPK limited conditions; leaf area index; yield;  water use by crop transpiration and soil evaporation, soil water balance, simple soil N, P and K balances; crop's N, P and K uptake 

Time horizon
crop growth period
Time step of modeling
day
Required to run

For  only running the model and only changing the input files, this can be done without FORTRAN by the command LINTUL5.exe

Required to develop

For changing and running the LINTUL5 programme, a FORTRAN compiler is required

Background information
Articles

Article about the LINTUL model applied to rice for both potential, water limited and N limited conditions is given by Shibu (see attachment)

Examples

The comparable LINTUL4 model is currently applied in the AgMIP model comparison for wheat models under climatic change. Results are not yet available

Applications & Use

See under Examples.
