Crop Modeling

Crop models are tools that allow simulating the growth and development of a species before given input variables.

They are a simplified representation of the processes that occur within a production system and that converge in production. A cultivation model is a useful tool to simulate hypothetical scenarios of environmental supply or management practices. The development and implementation of a cultivation model implies a broad and detailed knowledge of the processes that occur on a daily basis; Thus, the construction of this type of tools is a continuous and interdisciplinary process that can also help to detect gaps in the knowledge of the crop and its relationship with production factors. In this regard, Cenicaña works on crop models as a result of the research processes that are carried out daily and of the information they produce and not as a management objective.
