The effects of individual climatic elements on crop growth during distinct phases of plant development can be quantified allowing the calibration of mechanistic numerical models of crop growth. Such models give greater understanding of how different climatic factors interact to determine crop yield and have several uses including the prediction of where previously untested crops might be grown and of how changes in climate in specific regions could affect crop growth and yield there. In this chapter, we focus on lentil (Lens culinaris). Firstly, we describe LENMOD a lentil crop growth model developed in Canterbury, New Zealand (NZ). Secondly, we give details of a case study of validation of the model in the United Kingdom (UK) and its use to predict crop growth and seed yield of spring and autumn sown lentils in eight sites along a transect from NW Scotland to SE England chosen to encompass important environmental gradients in the UK.
