LINTUL-6 model is a simple crop growth model to simulate crop growth of many different crops under potential, water limited, and N limited crop growth conditions. The model can simulate crop rotations, however, the model does not simulate long-term organic matter decomposition and N cycling in the soil.
Total biomass, yield, water use by crop transpiration, soil evaporation, soil water balance,and crop N uptake for the different crops in the rotation.
Model can be run most easily from batch file; the changes in crop, weather and soil input files and in the rotation and batch run files can be done with a text editor. To change the model routines itself, a FORTRAN editor is needed.
