Implementation of the BBCH coding system for winter oilseed rape (OSR) phenology simulation can allow detailed description of crop ontogeny necessary for crop management and crop growth modelling. We developed such a BBCH model using an existing approach (Habekotte 1997). The new model describes winter OSR development by a combination of differential and conversion equations based on the structure of the BRASNAP-PH model (Habekotte 1997). Six phenological phases were reproduced daily according… CONTINUE READING
