Importance of the knowledge of the flowering period of cultivated plants for the forecasting of national crop yields in the European Union
This paper outlines the methods used to assess crop quality and estimate surface areas of major European crops. A good estimate for the flowering period is important for model tuning as flowering is a critical period for plants during which adverse meteorological situations can drastically reduce production. The paper also explains how the flowering period is simulated or observed. Results and applications are also given.
