Extention of the Hazel model for management support

The project is about the adaptation of the Hazel model to the conditions explored by hazelnut trees in important producing countries. Three years of dedicated experiments will allow monitoring key variables involved with phenology, leaf area evolution, and growth/productivity, thus allowing to extend the available parameterizations and to develop algorithms for processes still not included in the model (not relevant under the conditions explored till now).
