Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


SWAP contains three crop growth routines: a simple model, a detailed model (WOFOST), and the same model attuned to simulate grass growth. The simple model describes crop development, independent of external stress factors. The main function is to provide proper upper boundary conditions for soil water movement
