The concept of using mathematical models to investigate crop growth and productivity has attracted much attention in recent years. A major reason is that modelling can allow an expert in one area to assess the impact of his ideas in the light of other advances in our understanding of crop performance. Whether or not many of the claims made for or the demands made of models can ever be satisfied, this role as a focus for quantitative definition of crop growth is an important one. One consequence is that the development and appraisal of such models requires the efforts of scientists from a wide range of disciplines. This NATO Advanced Research workshop was designed to bring together such a range of scientists to consider the wheat crop, and assess our understanding of the crop and our ability to model its growth and yield. The ideas and organization behind the workshop involved many people. The U. K. interest in a computer model of wheat growth was instigated by Dr. Joe Landsberg (then of Long Ashton Research Station, but now Director of CSIRO Division of Forest Research), who in 1979 started a modelling exercise as part of a collaborative study of the causes of yield variation in winter wheat, involving four research institutes supported by the Agricultural and Food Research Council.

The purpose of this study was to develop a new crop simulation model that simulated the crop biomass and yield of winter wheat from accumulated thermal units and simple partitioning rules under the different water and weather conditions in Bavaria, by using the least required input data from the users, which permits a large section of users to use the model. Therefore, the simulated crop model was designed to be used not only at the research sector, but also at the educational and applied sectors. The developed model estimated also the winter wheat yield under the expected future weather conditions, by using the weather models REMO, CLM and STARII, for estimating the expected crop behavior and distribution of winter wheat till 2100.
