Short summary
We developed a new general model for predicting the growth and development of annual crops to help improve food security worldwide. We explore how accurately such a model can predict wheat and maize crop growth in Europe and the US when we use commonly used public datasets to calibrate the model. Satellite measurements of crop greenness and ground measurements of carbon dioxide exchange improve prediction accuracy substantially, whereas regional measurements of crop yields are less important.
