Crop models are key tools for agricultural research (van Ittersum et al., 2003). Despite the wide range of model applications, little attention has been paid to model calibration (Seidel et al., 2018). Detailed field trials are needed for this purpose but these are costly and barely conducted, and thus model parameters tend to become outdated. This study aims to present the results of field trials conducted in The Netherlands alongside a re-parametrization of WOFOST for relatively old and new wheat varieties. We deem this important given the genetic yield progress of wheat in The Netherlands (Rijk et al., 2013).
