Applications And Uses Of Crop Growth Models In Agricultural Meteorology

The crop growth models are being developed to meet the demands under the following situations in agricultural meteorology.

1 . When the farmers have the difficult task of managing their crops on poor soils in harsh and risky climates.

2. When scientists and research managers need tools that can assist them in taking an integrated approach to finding solutions in the complex problem of weather, soil and crop management.

3. When policy makers and administrators need simple tools that can assist them in policy management in agricultural meteorology.

The potential uses of crop growth models for practical applications are as follows (Sivakumar and Glinni, 2000).
