Abstract

The Climatically Optimal Planting date (COP) determinator has been elaborated for application in Mediterranean, Central Asian countries and former Soviet Union republics. The COP is a set of expert rules which allows determining crop sowing dates, which are optimal from point of view of the meteorological conditions. The COP has been designed for application in Crop Growth Monitoring System (CGMS). The monograph contains description of the expert rules, and the results of the COP validation, which has been done by comparing estimated sowing dates with near 500 field observed sowing dates for winter and spring wheat, maize and potatoes in Russia.
