Formatted abstract Asimulationmodel of the growth of the cassavacrop is described. It estimatescrop establishment from temperature data, and weekly increment of total biomass and underground storage organ biomass from temperature, solar radiation, pan evaporation and rainfall data.

The predictive ability of the model was tested using data from time of planting and irrigation experiments conducted in South-East Queensland, Australia. The predicted values were close to those obtained in the field experiments. The model was then used to estimateproductivity at different locations in northernAustralia. Two limiting factors for cassava production are low temperature in winter in the southern area and low rainfall in general.
