Abstract

The WOFOST Version 6.0 crop growth simulation model has been developed on the basis of an earlier WOFOST version as a generic agrometeorological module for incorporation in the Crop Growth Monitoring System (CGMS) for the regions of the European Union.
With CGMS, the output from WOFOST is used as a basis for monitoring the quality of the agricultural season over the whole territory of the EU, and for yield forecasting per administrative region (NUTS1 level). For that purpose WOFOST is fully linked to a geographical information system and to a relational database management system in CGMS. In addition, the WOFOST model is available as a stand alone crop model that can run on any computer platform independent of CGMS. It can be used as a research tool, for model development, testing and validation, and for education.
