In 1994, LINTUL-POTATO was published, a comprehensive model of potato development and growth. The mechanistic model simulated early crop processes (emergence and leaf expansion) and light interception until extinction, through leaf layers. Photosynthesis and respiration in a previous crop growth model—SUCROS—were substituted by a temperature-dependent light(More)
The LINTUL-Potato-DSS model uses the linear relationship between radiation intercepted by the crop and radiation-use efficiency (RUE), to calculate dry matter production. The model was developed into a yield forecasting system for processing potatoes based on long-term and actual weather and crop data. The model outcome (Attainable yield, Yatt) was compared(More)
