For each crop the following is presented: - general agronomic and production data and information; - the physiological and environmental requirements of the crop, and - a summary and comparison of the UK published models which relate crop development and yield to weather. The inventory is compiled in such a way that it is compatible with standard meteorological data, a geographic information system holding a 1:1,000,000 soils map of Europe, the EUROSTAT statistical data and information derived from satellite imagery.
