Model description

A simple dynamic crop simulation model using generally known processes with few parameters and data requirements and without any crop-specific processes for easy application to a wide range of crops.

Some case studies

Several case studies (model performance for a range of crops) can be found in: Zhao C, Liu B, Xiao LJ, Hoogenboom G, Boote KJ, Kassie BT, Pavan W, Shelia V, Kim KS, Hernandez-Ochoa IM, Wallach D, Porter CH, Stockle CO, Zhu Y, Asseng S (2019) A SIMPLE crop model.
