Technical Note No. 180
Weather-based mathematical models for estimating development and ripening of crops
Technical > Technical Notes (discontinued)
World Meteorological Organization (WMO)
A treatment of the formulation and operation of various models which relate the rate of crop development to certain environ-mental factors (mainly temperature and photoperiod). Many applications are discussed, including crop zonation, land-use planning, management and operation of the production and processing of crops, characterizing genotype response to the environment and use as a biological time-scale submodel for monitoring crop conditions and forecasting yield.
