The model is largely based on the model JALINTUL.CSM
(C.J.T. Spitters, 1990). It calculates the tuber and inulin dry matter during the
growing season under non-limiting conditions. This model differs from
JALINTUL in the calculation of tuber dry matter as a function of the
number of tubers, based on field trials in 1988 (Meijer and Mathijssen, 1991).
The model has been used to compare inulin production of Jerusalem
artichoke and chicory (Meijer and Mathijssen, 1993).
