The contribution of plant-growth simulation models in modelling agricultural holdings

, : The contribution of plant-growth simulation models in modelling agricultural holdings. Linking agricultural models: seminar proceedings, Montpellier, France, 14-15 June 1995: 66-70

The article takes as its starting point the observation that agricultural research is very useful in clarifying individual techniques but not so good at identifying the whole complex of factors that contribute to plant growth. The main reason for this is a lack of suitable data. Simulation models taking into account physiological and climatic characteristics, the state of the soil and sociocultural factors can be used to compensate for this lack.
